"By far, hands down last Halloween was the worst" exclaims Swordfish singer Chandler Lach in the chorus of their new single Ghost Song from their upcoming full length Rodia. As the song grows, so do the vocals as the rest of the band joins in, in a joyous fashion until everything falls apart and Lach is simply left with a few bass notes and the line "You wouldn't know...". Our friends at The Alternative are premiering today and we are beyond excited to show you the third single from this stellar LP.
Rodia will be released May 5th on CD/CS/Digtial via Take This To Heart Records.
FFO: Sorority Noise, American Football, Joyce Manor
Listen To "Ghost Song" Via The Alternative:
“We’re concerned with trying to be empathetic and trying to understand the impulses and dependencies of those close to you,” says Swordfish singer Chandler Lach. From the basements and living rooms of Ypsilanti, MI Swordfish were formed and their penchant for connecting to their fans comes from their down to earth upbringings. Lach goes on to say, “Everything from mental health, heartbreak, existentialism and accidently burning your friends with lit cigarettes is addressed on this album.”
Rodia takes cues from the beautiful guitar licks of American Football, the vocal urgency of Sorority Noise and the instant gratification of Joyce Manor, all while elegantly incorporating trumpet throughout each well crafted song. The eight tracks work together to bring the musings of anxious and heartbroken adolescents to a broader scale.
Rodia was recorded by Nick Diener (Swellers) at Oneder Studios and mastered by Cam Boucher (Sorority Noise) and will be released May 5th on CD/CS/Digital via Take This To Heart Records.
