Thanks to Sinjin Hilaski for this preview:
Melding melancholy lyrics with foot-stomping folk, Swear and Shake tells tales of loss, yearning and a stubbornly persistent romanticism. Initially formed in 2010, the Brooklyn based band has garnered quite a following touring throughout the country supplemented by their premier EP Extended Play and their album Maple Ridge, released in 2012. Swear and Shake’s increasingly popular back-country ballads have propelled them into numerous music festivals — such as the Governors Ball and Summer Camp — to play alongside artists like The Lumineers and G Love & Special Sauce, amongst others.
In spite of perpetual touring, Swear and Shake continues to find time to record, recently releasing new material this past year such as their singles “Brother” and “Fire”, favorites among the folk troupe’s fans.
The swooning styles of Swear and Shake take the stage Tuesday at The Wormhole.
The show will be one of the last five to wrap up Swear and Shake’s 2014 winter tour. SHAPES & Their Names and Beneath Trees will open. Check out our recent band spotlight on SHAPES & Their Names. Click here for the Facebook event info.
