101 Avenue A - New York, NY

Swansea Sound

Formed during lockdown, the band recorded three singles – at their homes in Cardiff and Kent – without actually meeting each other.  Corporate Indie Band appeared as a cassette on specialist label Lavender Sweep.  It got a lot of airplay, and the next releases were on 7” vinyl, including Indies Of the World, which made it into the UK vinyl Top 10.  A debut album, Live At The Rum Puncheon, was released in 2021 to considerable critical acclaim.
‘The glorious sounds of C86 brought into the now.’ Thomas Patterson, Shindig.
‘Close to an indie pop miracle.’ Tim Sendra, All Music.
‘An essential broadcast from the forefront of the indiepop resistance.’  Andy Brown, Louder than War.
