Swansea Sound have a lot of indie pedigree video!

 

Hue Williams and Amelia Fletcher are reunited in Swansea Sound, with a brand new set of songs and full-on indie attitude. 

You can hear it all over the Velvets soaked debut single, ‘Corporate Indie Band’, which comes complete with acidic darkly amusing lyrics taking down the corporate nature of modern indie…it’s all a damn catchy tune.

 

 


The Pooh Sticks project was never really finished…

Hue Williams and Amelia Fletcher are reunited in Swansea Sound, with a brand new set of songs and full-on indie attitude. 

 

First single to be released 17 October 2020

 

Swansea Sound singles will be released on grassroots indie labels, and made available digitally on the Swansea Sound bandcamp page.  The songs will not be found on Spotify, Apple Music or other corporate providers.

 

The first single is a two-track cassette on Welsh indie label Lavender Sweep.  In ‘Angry Girl’ and ‘Corporate Indie Band’ Hue and Amelia sometimes duet, sometimes duel, in songs about teenage rebellion, the liberating power of pop music – and the oppressive dead hand of the corporate music sector.

 

Guitars are provided by Rob Pursey, who has played with Amelia in Talulah Gosh/Heavenly/Marine Research/Tender Trap/Catenary Wires; drums are by Ian (Thrashing Doves/Death in Vegas/Catenary Wires).
