Swine Tax’s second single ‘Brittle’

‘Brittle’ is the second single by Newcastle’s finest, Swine Tax. Swine Tax is Vince Lisle (vocals, guitar); Tom Kelly (bass) and Charlie Radford (drums).  Swine Tax debut single ‘Chronic’ was released April 7th, having premiered on Gigslutz, to overwhelmingly positive reviews in the North East and beyond and I can see why. Swine Tax have a unique brand of alt-rock that they’re delivering to us in ‘Brittle’.

Taking influence from artists such as Car Seat Headrest, the National and Modest Mouse, ‘Brittle’ is a vibrant and guitar-driven indie-rock stomper which expresses feelings of inadequacy and debilitating insecurity within an intimate relationship. ‘Brittle’ is less dreamy and punchier than previous single ‘Chronic’. It shows a lot of maturity whilst also being very driven which is uncommon in these kinds of songs.

Having recently supported the hotly tipped the Orielles and Glass Caves, they are soon to announce a busy schedule of summer gigs across the North East, including Rrriot Fest alongside other Peanut Mixtape favourites, NO TEETH. The new single scheduled for full digital release on 16th June but in the meantime check it out on soundcloud here.
