Released in 2014 on Giles Peterson’s Brownswood Records, ‘Summer Fruits’ is a stunning window into Swindle’s versatile, eclectic sound.
The light, relaxed melodies come in bursts, separated by intense slashes of fragmented vocals. Swindle brings a solid musicianship to a song which would otherwise be a nice beat. Flute, saxophone and piano all add a touch of class.
Swindle, in many ways, transcends the dubstep sound, and continues to push it forward. But in this effort, you still get that streetwise swing, even as he proves his musical mettle.
