Songs Of Distance


Prior to even recording their debut album Swelter already supported such luminaries as The Frames (IE), The Veils (UK), Cracker (USA) and Bettie Serveert (NL). Extremely tasteful, melancholic guitar pop, that's how Holland's main music magazine Oor described the music of indie band Swelter after seeing them in concert. What takes most band years, Swelter managed to achieve in its first year of existence; performing on big stages for large audiences through a series of high profile gigs supporting such luminaries as The Frames (IE), The Veils (UK), Cracker (USA) and Bettie Serveert (NL). These series of gigs made Swelter not only a hot and much in demand live act. It also resulted in a lot of exposure in the (Dutch) national press and airplay on the main national radio stations. Quite an achievement without an album, or even a single release! Swelter debut album 'Songs of Distance' was recorded in various Dutch studios. Friends added tasteful contributions on mellotron, accordion, Hammond organ and grand piano. Belgian studio wizard Werner Pensaert (known from his work with amongst others Manic Street Preachers and Johan) mixed the record in The Motor Music Studios (Admiral Freebee, Zita Swoon etc.) and the next step, the final mastering of the album was done by the very capable and also Belgian, Uwe Teichert a studio ace whose credits include Nova Star and Deus. And the artwork is brilliant too!
