Pop-electronic trio The Swoons have revealed a brand new song, ‘Balance’ that was featured on Spotify's New Music Friday in both France and Canada! Following the release of their recent single ‘Lost’, this song features a dark emotional piano riff, underlying 808s and a delicate vocal to create a dreamy and hypnotic beat.
The Swoons are Matt Underwood, Tony Ann and Giacomo Timbrello. Currently based in LA, but stretching from multiple nations (London, Toronto and LA respectively). Fans of The Chainsmokers will be familiar with Tony’s work already, as he played keyboards on the band’s ‘Memories: Do Not Open’ tour last year, and co-wrote and performed on their latest single ‘Sick Boy’, which was released last month.
The Swoons began as a duo, when Matt and Tony began writing together while studying at Berklee College of Music. After a few early releases, Giacomo (another fellow classmate), joined the group having already collaborated on some of the band’s original productions and remixes.
On ‘Balance’, the band say: "Keeping balance is always a constant struggle whether its personal life, relationships or your job. We’d experienced relationships where it always felt like we were on the edge and no matter what we said we were always one step away from letting go or being let go. However, as we all know letting go of something special to you is much easier said than done. Set over a rhythmic 808 pattern and syncopated piano riff we wanted to recreate that emotion musically over a dreamy future pop setting.
The band are currently working on their debut EP which will be released Spring 2018. Further details to be announced.
