Sneer And Shout Swipe – Punk ‘N’ Rollers SWINE TAX Back With ‘SCREENSAVER’

Daily electricity to load your sonic batteries…


8 June 2020

Turn Up The Volume follows punk ‘n’ rollers SWINE TAX from Newcastle since their 2018 uppermost EP Recycle Bin on. I can’t figure out why they didn’t obtain world domination by now, but I’m pretty sure new ace single ‘SCREENSAVER‘ should catapult them to the next level.

This fresh stormy fireball is about ‘gawping at screens all day, slowly going insane and totally reliant on technology to communicate‘ and grabs you firmly by the throat from the wham-bam intro, the hefty harbinger for a rap-like sneer and shout swipe. The speedy pace, the rattling guitars, and rapid-fire chorus cutting like a shiny Swiss knife raise your body-temperature and adrenaline production. It’s a clear-cut wake-up call to go back to the good old face-to-face chat. Capeesh? Turn up the decibels and lose your mind here…

SWINE TAX Scores Big Time With Glorious New Single ‘NEVER ENDING’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

19 July 2018

Turn Up The Volume featured Newcastle upon Tyne‘s indie rockers SWINE TAX several
times before, so we’re in pole position to judge and announce that their new single
NEVER ENDING is, without a shadow of a doubt, their very best release (so far). It’s
about “a person, defiantly trying to hold back the tides of time and is determined to cling
onto a transitory pleasure, which in reality, will nevertheless fade from their memory and eventually disappear forever
” explains the band.

Sonically ‘Never Ending‘ is nothing less than an effervescent masterstroke. A multifaceted crackerjack that will activate your bloodstream’s flow every single second of its huge impact. This is intoxicating guitar pop at its very British best. High-spirited, perfervid,
totally electrical and injected with a monumental, hair-raising chorus with an anthemic resonance. Catch the imposing impressiveness right here…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

1 June 2018

Newcastle upon Tyne‘s rowdy indie trio SWINE TAX just shared new track TORY WATER, their rawest cut so far. “Part disjointed character study, part sardonic commentary on the local music industry, ‘Tory Water’ is unflinching in its account and unrelenting in its intensity.” says the band. Oh yes, this manic stroke hits like a hell-raising explosion driven by fierce frustration, heated anger, and biting discontent. I guess there are enough love songs out there. What we need – again – is more young, committed and opinionated bands, like this rowdy engine, coming out and question unjust issues with furious energy and razor-sharp knockouts. This scorching thwack does the job exquisitely. Open your windows and doors and share this electrical flare-up with your neighborhood. Hell yeah…
