About Us

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.

Recorded over the pandemic, Loom wrestles with themes of existential anxiety and uncertainty during a tumultuous period of dissociation. The record finds contrast through scale, where interpersonal circumstances weigh just as heavy as the specter of climate change, as well as its ability to explore tension through introspective lyrics set to upbeat composition. Resolve comes to the fore in its acknowledgment of loss, facing grim realities of "witnessing a friend slowly disappear into nothing", and choosing to create art out of destruction. 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.
