Swansea formed in 2011 when Portland, Oregon mainstays, musician/actress/writer, Rebecca Sanborn (Loch Lomond, Blue Cranes) and drummer, Ji Tanzer (Blue Cranes, Rebecca Gates) recruited Kansas City multi-instrumentalist/singer Kyleen King to expand the sound of their long standing duo project. As a trio, in 2012 the group released their first full length album “Old Blood” and completed multiple tours of the United States. Between 2013-2015, Swansea toured Europe and found significant success in scoring and licensing music for a diverse array of films, including the track & field documentary “We Grew Wings” (2013), the feature length, multi-award winning dramas “Light of Mine” (2013), “A Standing Still” (2014) and “Death On A Rock” (2015). With the engineering/production help of John Askew (Neko Case, Wild Flag), Swansea’s sophomore album, “Flaws” was released April 28th 2017 on the Self Group label. Stylistically, Swansea combine artful narrative and atmospheric sweep with a touch of dancey, off-the-cuff toughness–often drawing comparison to LCD Soundsystem, Feist and My Brightest Diamond.
