SWINE LANGUAGE presents:
BOY HARSHER (USA - ASCETIC HOUSE / DKA RECORDS)
Formed in Savannah (GA), Boy Harsher is a dark electronic duo that produces gritty dance beats infused with ethereal vocals, creating a sound that is eerie, intense and incredibly danceable. Augustus Muller develops the underbelly of sound with minimal beats and grinding synths, where Jae Matthews whispers, screams and chants on top. Together, the music created is somewhere between industrial, drone and confessional storytelling. Muller and Matthews both have a strong background in film and their cinematic approach translates effectively in both their recordings and live performance.
Their upcoming 'Country Girl' EP is released via Ascetic House this October and it will be a sure fire record of 2017.
CHAIN OF FLOWERS (ALTER - CARDIFF)
Fresh from recent dates opening for The Jesus & Mary Chain! Another Cardiff show to boot, this will be sweatier.
"Chain of Flowers is a 5-piece post-punk band based in Cardiff, Wales who have been hailed as one of the finest young post-punk bands to emerge from the UK in years. Comprised of Joshua Smith (vocals), Ross Jones (guitar), Rich Clarke (drums), Daniel Anderson (bass) and Matthew Clements (synths),
Since their inception in 2012, the band has been invited to tour and perform with internationally-acclaimed acts including The Fall, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Chameleons, Ceremony, A Place To Bury Strangers, Merchandise and Eagulls on the strength of their mesmerizing live performances and superb recorded releases. CHAIN OF FLOWERS has received rave reviews as well as an unusual degree of airplay on both sides of the Atlantic (including BBC Radio 6 and KEXP in Seattle)".
NIGHT THOUGHTS (SWINE LANGUAGE - CARDIFF)
New project Night Thoughts is the ice fraught outlet of Danny P and Matthew Clements. Based in Cardiff, members of Mars To Stay (RIP) and Chain of Flowers respectively push forward with emotionally cavernous yet driven cold wave, gracefully delivering this sound with the untimely bleak sway and so much more.
Over 5 tracks, ‘The Complaint’ demo weeps, scratches, pounds whilst glistening from beginning to end, all in an incredibly accomplished manner. There is a grey looming above you and this is its soundtrack.

The first single from the album ‘Pale Blue Dot’ held the No 1 spot on the Beatport dnb chart for over a month, with DJ support from Netsky, Chase & Status, Pendulum, Sub Focus, Sigma, TC and more. 2014 saw them go from strength to strength with ‘Just Bounce’ featured on Andy C’s ‘Nightlife 6’ album and the duo being signed to Primary Talent Agency, as well as a summer residency on BBC Xtra Talent. Proving to be one of the hottest acts in the UK Drum & Bass club scene, they achieved 3 out of the top 10 selling D&B tracks of 2014 with tracks with Abyss VIP, Pale Blue Dot and Humanoid.
2015 saw the release of their debut album, 'City of Gold'. The album features amazing vocals from the likes of Mad Hed City (Pop It Off), Ayak (Under), Ayah Marar (Kill The Silence), Laconic (Is It Love) and Amy Pearson (Don't Let It Go). But on the closing track 'Slip Away', Chris Garvey performs a moving vocal as a dedication to his mother.... See MoreSee Less
