Today marks the release of the highly awaited new single from culturally diverse group The Swoons. Conspiracy of Silence is the third and most eagerly awaited single yet from these mega talented lads.
Who are The Swoons?
The Swoons are a four-piece of supreme quality that will be taking over they airwaves pretty soon! Uniquely enough, all four band members hail from different locations and consist of Trevor Myall (Newfoundland), Matt Underwood (Hertfordshire,UK) , Tony Ann (Toronto) and Giacorno Timbrello (California). Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music was the binding location that put the four artists in the same postcode. The lot of them were top level students there and all but one graduated with top marks.
Why didn’t they all graduate?
The reason was pretty damn exciting as to why Tony Ann didn’t complete his college course. After posting a piano cover on YouTube in 2016, Ann became somewhat of a viral hit overnight. His cover of a tune by The Chainsmokers absolutely skyrocketed. It got to the point where he befriended Alex Pall and Drew Taggart and took off touring with them around the world. Ann became their live show keyboard player. Since, he has Co-written three of their biggest hits. I think we can forgive him for not finishing Uni. What a story!
Where did it Begin?
The Swoons were actually formed as an entity by Underwood and Ann in 2014 after a random Ed Sheeran themed Facebook post by Underwood united the two initially. Timbrello joined up as his electronic production skills were too hot to ignore. Myall was the last to join in 2018 to complete the formidable foursome. Since then, the group has released two really well received pop tunes with Lost Frequency and Lost.
Yesterday, their most accomplished single thus far, Conspiracy of Silence has just surfaced on all major platforms. This track is their most defining single and blew me away when I heard it a couple of days ago.
The lads welcomed the single with a sneaky showcase gig at The Islington in London last night. This was a major milestone for the band as it was their first live show outside of the US. It certainly will not be their last foray to the British shores, that’s for sure. The single itself is a real thing of beauty. The tune is a sea of epic harmonies, gospel-like glory and superb falsetto’s rippling around in unison. This is a power ballad, there is no doubting it. They have constructed powerful and compelling stuff here and the scary thing is that they are only setting off on their musical journey together.
Whats in store for The Swoons?
The band are currently in London for a series of songwriting workshops with the best in the business. Amidst this autumn trip they are working closely with some of the collaborators behind the works of Ed Sheeran, Adele, Lana Del Ray and Florence & The Machine. They are definitely in good hands. This year is looking like it will be the breakout year for them and I’m delighted to bring you this piece today.
Check out their brand new single ‘Conspiracy of Silence‘ below.
