York-based alt-electronic duo, Haxby Swango, have today announced their signing to Yorkshire electronica label, Anonymous Records. The band will be releasing their latest EP ‘The Lately Low’ under the imprint on 28th November 2015, a collection of songs mixed and mastered by the legendary producer Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Beastie Boys, Best Coast).
On the signing, Anonymous Records co-founder, Stewart Moss comments: “When we first heard Haxby Swango, we knew that there was something special here; they’re not your average electronic duo - we are really enthusiastic about this signing!”
“We are really excited about the future!” adds Jack Swango, keyboardist “A label for electronic music is really progressive for Yorkshire, and the North in general. We are really happy to add colour and strength to the Anonymous Records movement.”
Aside from their striking approach to the visual aesthetic of the project, the pair’s radically free and forward-thinking electronica sees them carving out a very particular niche within the subculture; these aren’t dance floor bangers - think The Cure in a nightmarish alternate reality where they’d been influenced by Die Antwoord, Grimes, The XX and Smashing Pumpkins.
Blending elements of electronica, trap, hip hop, house and alternative rock, this multi-coloured genre-clash is surely one of the most unique sounds to ever emerge from Yorkshire.
