swansea sound

Formed during lockdown, the band recorded three singles – at their homes in Cardiff and Kent – without actually meeting each other.  Corporate Indie Band appeared as a cassette on Swansea-based specialist label Lavender Sweep.  It got a lot of airplay, and the next releases were on 7” vinyl, including Indies Of the World, which made it into the UK vinyl Top 10.  A debut album, Live At The Rum Puncheon, was released in 2021,, followed by a second - Twentieth Century - in September of 2023. Both albums received considerable critical acclaim.


‘The glorious sounds of C86 brought into the now.’ Thomas Patterson, Shindig.


‘Close to an indie pop miracle.’ Tim Sendra, All Music.


‘An essential broadcast from the forefront of the indiepop resistance.’  Andy Brown, Louder than War.


Swansea Sound are Hue Williams (The Pooh Sticks), Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey (both Talulah Gosh/Heavenly, The Catenary Wires), Bob Collins (The Dentists, The Treasures of Mexico), Ian Button, (Death in Vegas, Louis Philippe, Pete Astor, Papernut Cambridge)
