OK – so it’s technically not that new any more, but that doesn’t stop it being that amazing. Fuzzy indie dance music is something that gets done well here in Australia and Them Swoops from Melbourne are a mighty fine example of Aussies doing it well.
The band was formed by Dave McGann and Chris Goff in early 2012 after working on a bunch of blissed out, electro-indie, pop music–they formally released their first single, Work around it, at the tail end of last year. The band quickly racked up air time both home and away, rampantly racing up the top twenty most request songs on US radio in November.
After playing only a handful of live shows they have quickly amassed a strong following among the industry and it’s peers. Fasterlouder gushed: “Frontman Dave McGann led the four piece with an effortless, charming swagger that would rival Jagger”… Them boy’s got swag!
