Format: New 12" EP Label: Keck Cat. No. KECK002 Barcode: 5060384619873 Released: 09/04/2021
New black vinyl 12" EP
Giant Swan return with their first new music almost a year to the day since their instant classic self-titled debut LP. Silkworm is a weapons grade, leftfield club banger, primed to cause delirious devastation on the dancefloor that we're all currently denied, and the initial blast from a 3 track EP coming in 2021, Do Not Be Afraid Of Tenderness.
Giant Swan are one of the most exciting artists to emerge from the UK underground in recent years. With equal appeal to fans of hardcore punk or noise-rock as club kids and clued up electronica fans, the duo toured relentlessly pre-COVID, playing everywhere from Berghain to Glastonbury to support slots with The Horrors and IDLES, and a series of 12"s on tastemaker labels such as Whities and Timedance leading up to their debut album. This first new music to emerge from the group in over a year epitomises everything that makes them so thrilling - mis-shapen techno textures, sub-bass and snatches of distorted vocals that create a unique interplay. Released once again on their own Keck imprint, and mastered by multi-disciplinary artist Russell Haswell, noted for his collaborative work with the likes of Aphex Twin, Mika Vainio and Merzbow.
