Boston's The Big Sway are one of the more interesting bands out their. Their latest single, "Almost Home," has that kind of post punk/noise rock sound you would associate with a band like Mission of Burma or The Jesus Lizard. (In fact, the song was mastered by Bob Weston of Mission of Burma and Shellac.) But, this isn't really just a noise punk sound. There are also some elements of more mainstream punk, kind of like a Celtic-less Dropkick Murphys. And then the song ends just shy of two and a half minutes as a fantastic noise punk rocker with some mainstream chops. But... it's nowhere near over. From there it morphs into this odd, dreamy psychedelic song. This is an interesting one that will have you wanting to hear what The Big Sway do next.
You can watch the video for "Almost Home" below. We Made This for You is due out this summer. For more on The Big Sway, check out the band's website.
