For those who’ve been here for a minute, you may remember when I interviewed SWMRS for the original release of Drive North. My Q&A skills have come a long way in three years (thank god), and so have SWMRS. From getting signed to Fueled By Ramen to opening for Muse, they’re kind of killing it. And now they’ve teamed up with Vevo for some sick live performances that you can now watch below!
Every time I see Vevo doing cool things like this with emerging artists, another 5 years get added onto my life. Even the fact that Vevo reaches out to me to let me know when they’re doing cool things with emerging artists… like, me?? Who am I?? No one!! But they’re actively supporting smaller members of the industry so we can all grow together and I get so emo about it. The future is gonna be so bright if we all learn to grow together.
SWMRS’ new album Berkeley’s On Fire has been on repeat in my car since it came out. Every time “Steve Got Robbed” comes on, I make everyone shut up until after the intro. Every time someone hears it for the first time, I get the same confused look and I live for it. “Hellboy” is another personal fave, if you’re looking for somewhere to start.
I’ve already seen these guys come so far, from Emily’s Army to now… and I’m certain this is only the beginning. Jump on the bandwagon, we’re driving this baby off the rails. 🤠
