The Swerve: Taken Apart

Taken Apart EP cover art

Taken Apart is the latest EP from Bay Area synthpop trio The Swerve, aka Mikael Johnston, Jana Hanavan and D1. The four tracks on Taken Apart range from 80's influenced beats, to indie/classical fusion, to intimate and alluring featuring Hanavan's lush vocals. With flawless musicianship and sterling production (as one would expect from accomplished producers Johnston and D1), The Swerve deliver an EP that is perfectly placed to expand the path trodden by shoegaze. This is a band that will leave an important mark and need to be part of one's consciousness. Stream Taken Apart and download the track The Beach for free at the link below.
