Swearin' - Fall Into The Sun [COKE-BOTTLE VINYL] - New LP
After releasing two beloved full-lengths, 2012’s Swearin’ and 2013’s Surfing Strange, the Philadelphia band SWEARIN’ quietly put things on hold. It was due, at least in part, to the band’s main songwriters, ALLISON CRUTCHFIELD and KYLE GILBRIDE, ending their romantic relationship. But when the band found themselves in a room again years later, the conversation turned back to Swearin’. They realized that what they all wanted was to not just play shows, but to make a new record. They wanted to do something that reflected the people they’d become during those intervening years. Before long, Crutchfield and Gilbride had a new batch of Swearin’ songs, ones that meshed with the sound they’d originally developed together but boldly pushed things forward. Fall into the Sun is a Swearin’ record that doesn’t try to obscure the passage of time but instead embraces it. Listening to Fall into the Sun, Swearin’ is a more confident, collaborative version than the one people first came to know. Crutchfield and Gilbride always had an innate ability to mirror the other’s movements in songs, but here, they build a focused lyrical perspective across their songs, one that’s thankful for their past, but looks boldly toward the future.
