Swindy releases new music video from debut EP, announces live shows and full-length album for 2018
 
Swindy has released the video for “Reflection,” a tale of loss and longing unfurling against sun-bleached desert ruins set to the first single off of the self-titled 2016 debut EP.

One of the many heartening aspects of this particular gathering of the industrial music scene is not only the diversity of music but that of the crowd as well; fans of experimental and atmospheric industrial and exploratory sound mingle with those that prefer melodic and lyrical expression or even the more primal urges to simply move one’s feet and shake one’s fists on the dance floor. With this year spanning three nights and offering the largest and one of the most varied artist rosters ever, ColdWaves is an opportunity not just for musical discovery but also for friends old and new to share in this industrial community [..]

ColdWaves VI

 

Five years after the departure of Jamie Duffy, the sixth entry in the Chicago ColdWaves event perhaps bore some of the deepest scars in the fight against depression and suicide.
