Brother Swan is an indie rock quartet based in Los Angeles, CA. With inspirations like My Bloody Valentine, LCD Soundsystem, Elliott Smith, Alex G, and David Bowie, their debut LP, Loom, unites Chris Matthews' pastel vocals with Chris Weisson's locked-in drums and Ian Stahl's melodic bass lines.
Released on October 3rd, Loom debuted at #109 on the NACC Radio Charts. "Good Luck Baby", "Spill", and "When's the Last Time" were featured three consecutive weeks in a row on LA's 88.5FM Buzzbands with Kevin Bronson. Their success on radio is in parallel with a slew of hometown shows in LA, with performances at the Goldfish, Gold Diggers, the Offbeat Bar, and an upcoming show with Supergloom at Harvard and Stone in the New Year.
Recorded over the pandemic, Loom wrestles with themes of existential anxiety and uncertainty during a tumultuous period of dissociation. Ultimately Loom is a record about dissolution, acknowledging one’s own avoidance and anxiety, and rebuilding through expression. It documents the renewal of love we have for those who have been in our lives, even if they are no longer around to hear the music.
