Giant Swan

Giant Swan is the brainchild of Robin Stewart & Harry Wright; an acerbic marriage of energised, aggressive dance music, quaking bass and hypnotic electronic noise.

'They’re not the first to approach techno from a hardcore punk sensibility, but their energy on stage is pushing them into a league of their own. Imagine Container and Alan Vega attempting a peak-time techno record, and you’re halfway to grasping the Giant Swan sound' — RESIDENT ADVISOR

Across a table of machines and pedals, incorporating abused guitar and liberal vocal manipulation, Giant Swan create a cross-breed of hypnotic bass, industrial percussion and disorientating energy delivered with telepathic intricacy.

Vital players within Bristol’s Howling Owl collective and with strong ties to the city’s deep musical heritage, Giant Swan are a maelstrom of potential energy, bleeding between several sonic movements that both obliterate and invigorate. Building on a foundation of rhythmic tension and frenzied improvisation, no two performances are the same as the duo re-build and destroy their twisted vision of techno-not-techno.

'Their live performances are exceptionally potent, recalling the ecstatic dance-not-dance music of early Holy Fuck and the pure WTF?! gristle and energy of the first Rezzett records' — THE QUIETUS

The acclaimed release of the Earn 12″ on FuckPunk in 2016 confirmed them as one of the most exciting electronic acts to emerge in recent years, and this 2017’s EP on Timedance along with game changing performances at Villette Sonique, Berghain and Unsound Festival has taken things to a whole new level.
