Now the Swell EP
The Union Trade's music is in turns beautiful, atmospheric and dark. Moving from the spare and intense, to the massive and dramatic, expansive guitar sounds collide as rich vocals emerge from the feedback and electricity, creating dense melodies and cinematic walls of sound. Recorded at New Improved Recording, in Oakland, CA Now The Swell draws on alternative, indie and post-rock influences such as The Appleseed Cast, Mogwai, Longwave, Explosions In The Sky and Slowdive. The Union Trade channels this sonic ambition into carefully crafted songs with emotional immediacy and visceral impact. This is melodic/shoegaze guitar rock that is indie to it's core but orchestral in mood, movement and force. Available formats: CD & Digital.
