Well, its 2013 and there is a new song from 90’s shoegaze demi-gods, Swervedriver. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to end out the year. This is the first piece of newly record music in over 15 years. Deep Wound is the first single off their new 7 inch. The single also features a remix of the song titled “Dub Wound” done by Mark Gardener of the british shoegaze band, Ride.
If you read this site frequently you’ll know that I have a tendency to speak about this band whenever possible. At first I wasn’t sure if this would be more in the realm of Adam Franklins solo records, however it’s not. This is very much Swervedriver in their finest. Deep Wound sums up the bands hazy shoegaze sound in a nutshell and proves that the band still has it after all of these years.
According to a press release there will be a new album coming out in 2014. Deep Wound is available for download via bandcamp and iTunes. A a limited amount of 7inches were pressed for their Australian leg of the tour via Tym Records. However, those copies have since sold out, but if you’re lucky probably find a copy online.
