Silver Swans: Are You Really On My Side
From Realize the Ghost, their full-length album just out on Tricycle Records.
|Silver Swans are named for a group of super-villains in the Wonder Woman comics. The evil Swans have the ability to create powerful sound waves with their voice. The “swan song” is capable of devastating a small area of land with its destructive force. By creating a low-level humming, the Silver Swan can form a protective shield around herself that can deflect bullets and projectiles.
In real life, Silver Swans are far from evil wrong doing. This electro dream pop project captures the eerie drama of The Knife and the sweet darkness of Ladytron. Silver Swans began in 2007 as a song floating between producer and musician, Jon Waters and vocalist Ann Yu. Harnessing the energy of electro pop infused with dream-like ethereal vocals, the song ‘Realize The Ghost’ soon flourished into a collection of tracks, and found it’s way into the hands of local label, Tricycle Records.
