SUICIDE SWANS Augusta cover

There’s a classic songwriter’s sensibility about their work, real craftsmanship from players who’ve been honing their skills over a long time.” – Trevor Jackson (Sound Distractions)

“‘Horses’ has a great sound with a push/pull guitar riff vying for space amid crashing chords and a suitably worn and weary alt-country vocal that urges the song onwards and upwards before dissolving in buzz and static.”  – Doubtful Sounds (Post To Wire)

After the successful release of their new single ‘Horses’ and outstanding BIGSOUNDperformance, Suicide Swans have gained a whole slew of media attention. With support from Post to Wire and Australian Musician, the band are set to hit the road on their Queensland tour alongside the release of their highly anticipated album ‘Augusta’.

Hailing from Toowoomba this 5-piece alt-country/rock band have been strumming their way through South East Queensland since 2012. The band recently stepped out into the national scene with the release their new single “Horses” from their forthcoming albumAugusta. Along with it’s guitar driven riffs and powerful vocals, the song takes the listener on a ride through clever metaphorical imagery as Kyle Jenkins (Vocals/Guitar) explains – “The song is about people ‘who are invisible’ where you have an attachment / relationship to them but at the same time feel nothing. The song uses metaphors of holiday vacations, my house getting broken into (did happen), thoughts racing through your mind like horses stampeding – are all events where events and memories blind you and you can’t think straight… At the end of the chorus the line of ‘you’ll probably see that I don’t care’ sums up the entire song of just saying at the end of the day none of it means anything and essentially we are alone.”
