Giant Swan

Do Not Be Afraid Of Tenderness


Released: 9th April 2021

12"£12.99 Buy Now In Stock. Dispatched tomorrow.

Giant Swan return with an EP of 3 new tracks, their first new music since their debut album dropped at the end of 2019. The tracks epitomise everything that makes them so thrilling - misshapen techno textures, sub-bass and snatches of distorted vocals that create a unique interplay.
Released once again on their own Warp-affiliated KECK imprint and mastered by multi-disciplinary artist Russell Haswell, noted for his collaborative work with the likes of Aphex Twin, Mika Vainio and Merzbow.
Giant Swan are one of the most exciting artists to emerge from the UK underground in recent years.
With equal appeal to fans of hardcore punk or noise-rock as club kids and clued up electronica fans, the duo toured relentlessly pre-COVID, playing everywhere from Berghain to Glastonbury to support slots with The Horrors and IDLES, with a series of 12”s on tastemaker labels such as Whities and Timedance leading up to their debut album.
