TUNE Swazi Gold - Shapeshifting
Ahead of the release of their debut record 'Jehovah's Whispers' on March 1st via Australian imprint Research Records, Swazi Gold have revealed a new single 'Shapeshifting', taken from it.
"...an enticing preview...pitting twinkling alt-pop synth lines against a lo-fi feel." - CLASH
The track comes with a brilliantly trippy video directed by Ashley Goodall, who has recently worked with Tim Presley's White Fence on the track 'Phone', and illustration from Melbourne artist and friend, Ben Jones.
Swazi Gold draw on their collective love of Nigerian funk, American electronics, and quirky, melody-driven pop music to explore the spaces between conventional genres. Artists ranging from the likes of Haruomi Hosono and William Onyeabor to JJ Cale, Talking Heads, and Harry Nilsson form the reference points that give spark to the band's creative flame.
