Despite missing out on a live set from Sex Swing at Supersonic Festival 2020 this year, we’ve still kept in touch with this band of malevolent rogues. Following our interview with them about their new album ‘Type II‘ back in April for the Supersonic Podcast, we’ve asked the guys to put together a playlist of songs that loosely pins-down their collective taste in music.
Unearthed from the UK underground, Sex Swing are a ‘supergroup’ of sorts. Between them, individual members have been sparking tinnitus in bands such as Mugstar, Bonnacons Of Doom, Earth, Dethscalator, Dead Neanderthals and now even Idles. Terrifyingly visceral, Sex Swing create music that can be likened to the haunted clangour of a faulty air conditioning unit that lurks in an anonymous office building. It’s man vs machine where discord becomes harmony and it’s a fearsomely invigorating spectacle to behold.
“We all have very diverse tastes, which is highlighted in this playlist.
I think that goes a long way to understand how we come up with the music we make.
These are songs that we are digging at the moment…”
