Swallows is an Americana band from Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota that formed in 2008. Towards the end of last year they released Witching & Divining, the band’s second full-length album and fourth release.
The rasping, gravelly vocals, sombre cello and chanted junkyard chorus on The Winnowing call to mind Tom Waits and The Wicker Man in equal measure. It is a combination we are liking rather a lot.
