Using found sounds, electronic loops, guitars that sound like synthesisers, and synthesisers that sound like they’re from Mars, the Swamp Gods weave infectious beats with bubble gum harmonies and angular melodies. Put this together with an intense stage presence and sense of humour and you get an act that’s winning fans and impressing hardened critics at every performance.
