One Swallow Makes A Summer 28/8/18

Russell Swallow is one of those lucky pre-Brexit kids who has spent the last two years living between London and Berlin. As a result his sound is a refreshing synthesis of the classic British singer-songwriter tradition with ambient Berlin soundscapes. He uses confessional lyrics and allegorical storytelling to create songs that range from hushed, prayer-like confessionals to soaring, Indie epics. Inspired by the likes of Bon Iver, Jack Savoretti, James Bay, Ray Lamontagne and Jeff Buckley, he taught himself to write songs by blending his passion for poetry and short stories with his newfound love of Indie-driven sounds. Swallow's stunning new EP 'My Lover, Her Lover And Me' blends Folk, Electronica and Soul, so not only check out today's Track Of The Day but also his gig at The Finsbury in London next Tuesday 4th September.
