Stonefaced is OUT NOW on CD and download!
"That track Stonefaced is undoubtedly excellent." - Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music
The music industry is a fickle beast, one minute you are riding the crest of a wave, the next, you’re music is out of fashion! Not so with Nottingham band, The Swiines.
Yet to infiltrate mainstream consciousness, they continue to be considered as one of the most consistent local bands around. In a relatively short life span of 18 months - give or take a month – they have released two EP’s, launched a club night and supported some illustrious rock luminaries. And with the genesis of a new decade they are ready to re-style rock music.
It has been a turbulent ride for the rock foursome, three of whom – lead vocals Scott Bugg, guitar Adi Young and drums Daniel Taylor – have been there from the start, with changes in management and fallouts rife.
Yet despite the strife their music hasn’t suffered. From first coming together from the ashes of two popular Notts bands they have grown in maturity.
A fresh rock swagger to their sound characterised the early days and, although these influences remain, they have evolved, producing more lyrically charged Brit-rock melodies with the occasional explosive chorus.
If one song sums up their brash hedonistic early days it has to be My Plasticine Bowl. It remains a popular choice amongst their followers, who have seen them share stage time with The Subways, The Rifles and invited by the White Lies to perform at one of their parties!
The raucous pace of their songs created an infectious buzz amongst chest-puffed audiences. Yet they have reformed this youthful exuberance and have fine-tuned a more stripped back pace that smacks of maturity, with a hint of boisterous excitement simmering under the surface.
This is characterised by the lead single, Stonefaced, from their debut album due out in the autumn. A rich melody that leads throughout is charged with an explosiveness that skulks in the background.
This new direction has earned them considerably more label interest and 2009 finished strongly with interviews on Radio 1’s newsbeat

It\'s just pure indie rock n roll all the way. Theres the classic sounds from The Who, The Beatles to morden day classics like Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and The Stone Roses. All with a Swiines twist.
The last time I went crowd surfing was probably in 1997
A proper electric atmosphere.
We always get a few crazy people who claim they\'ve met us before. Weird dancing is a regular occurence. A lad in Derby was off the hook the other night. Wild.
Glastonbury in England. Its just the best festival over here.. nothing comes lose to it. I\'ve heard from mates that some on the less well known festivals are really good. Countries that you wouldnt instantly think of like Latvia and Poland.
not tired all the time.
It\'d be nice to be big, but at the moment with the music industry like it is then I wouldnt bank on any big bands from round here coming out anytime in the near future
As long as theres food Im happy. I can do without the alcohol normally because Im driving.
I threw a tv down some stairs at my parents house when I was younger. Probably works better out of a window though. Yeah, I\'d like to give that a go. Maybe make a national sport or something.
Right from the start is sounded good, but a year down the line now everyone knows each other better its sounds more stable, still raw, but a controlled rawness.
Keep away from the SHU
This gets asked in every single interview we do. The Bets broke up and asked me and Tom if we wanted a jam. Fin.
Just wait for Corro to come on the tele and drink tea.
Scott just said \"we\'re Swines\" aren\'t we. And that was that. We stuck the double ii in the just for the hell of it I think.
Gets you out the house Music Good haircuts Your might make a new friend Alcohol
