SWARF

FALL EP

The UK trio of Liz, Chris & Andrew, Swarf have gained a sizeable fanbase through their increasingly excellent live performances & this debut EP shows that they also have what it takes in the studio & will definately serve to wet the appetite of those waiting for their debut album.In the meantime, you can visit their website at http://www.swarf.org.uk.

In many ways it seems that the idea of this EP is just to intorduce the band to the listening public & show off their versatility as each track is quite different. The opening title track is an instant dancefloor classic, mixing synthpop, electro & dance styles although the triumphant "Vision" which follows is even better with powerful rhythms & totally irresisitable melodics.This track demonstrates that the band will not always stick to established electro styles but are looking at ways of injecting something that is just a little bit different into their music which is important if they are to rise above the many new bands currently making their mark. Liz Green's powerful vocals are another important asset to the band which also come across well in a live setting. "Sorrow" shows the band's more emotional & melancholic side & although the slowly evolving rhythms do inject a pleasingly majestic note into proceedings it's quite likely that, had they been left out it would have made for a more reflective listening experience (an idea for a future remix, possibly?)

The remixes which complete the EP are from their various labelameates & given Wasp Factory's penchant for signing the more progressive (for want of a better term!!) bands going there's bound to be a few surprises amongst this little lot. Chaosphere give a more dancey flavour with harder hitting rhythms in particular.Exitboy turn the track into a manic electro/rave piece but the honours for the best version goes to Tarantella Serpentine's "Dirty Little Fucker" drum & bass mix with it's heavy bassline which builds an impressive head of steam as the track progresses. Freudstein's mix is closer to the original but with a busier rhythmic backing that, while OK, adds little that the original doesn't already have in spades.

As a tantalising glimpse of what Swarf can do this will certainly make many sit up & listen, now do us all a favour & get that album released, willya???
