Here at Wall of Sound, we don’t discriminate against rock. It comes in all different shapes, sizes and sounds, but when a track comes along that grabs your attention as much as Swan’s latest offering, you have to pass it on to the masses. Allow us to catch you up on this Australian hero.
Matt Swan was once a founding member of Royal Blood (back in the early days) who grew up in the small town of Terranora, just north of Byron Bay. His passion for music has taken him all over the place including slots at Falls Festival, supporting Wolfmother, Stonefield and Kingswood + even Harley Quinn errr… Margot Robbie‘s wedding (yeah, you read that right).
Now he’s back again with his hard-rockin’ new single ‘Sweat Baby Sweat‘ which gives off some major solo Kram (Spiderbait) and Torrential Thrill vibes and may just be what you’re looking for if you’ve been surrounded by the plethora of core bands getting about around the country lately. On the new song, Swanny revealed:
“Sweat Baby Sweat is simply about letting the good times roll live life to the max – life is one big party. It was written after a long hot Summer’s night of no sleep in Byron Bay in 2018. I had just got home in the early hours of the morning after playing drums at one of Byron Bay’s crazy warehouse parties – I picked up the guitar, cracked another beer and the main riff quickly came to me. I then laid down some drums and Sweat Baby Sweat was born.”
