Swine Tax are a trio from Newcastle who have blended punk, noise and rock into a raw assault on the senses. And I love it.
Their latest single out 1st June ‘Tory Water’ has a punky raw character and so much energy you could use it launch a rocket ship. The punky feel morphs into layers of guitars and noise clearly influenced by the likes of Sonic Youth and the cries of ‘Never had a conscience’ may have something to do with the song title. The musical chaos they create is extraordinary and I love how the vocals interact with the backing.
Overall this is an exciting release and holds promise for when they hit the studio in the next few months.
Tory Water is available on the 1st June and you can find out more about Swine Tax at the links below
