Recommended first album:
Unmask the Sound is their sole known release
Unmask the Sound (c. 2004)
Jorge Espino and Elvis Sánchez
Swerve's sound is dreamy and poppy and strongly rhythmic. Jaclyn Blankenship's vocals are sweet but powerful. "Solace" is one of the most haunting songs I've heard in a while. The music is like New Order at their finest. The title track reminds me of Morcheeba's early songs. "Hipno" is fun and spirited with a frantic beat. The drum'n'bass stylings of "Lights" are just great. This is a very special debut. (email@example.com)
