American SWMRS are coming to play in Prague for the first time. Inspired by The Clash or Frank Ocean, the band will bring their highly anticipated sophomore record Berkeley’s On Fire. Determined to create something new within the rock genre, SWMRS collaborated with envelope-pushing producer Rich Costey (Muse, Death Cab for Cutie).
The sonic diversity of the album is indicative of a generation reared on streaming services. SWMRS make music the way they consume it, jumping easily from pop rock to breakbeat-infused rock to emo punk, and jangly power pop. “When we were writing these songs we were very conscious of our role in creating a space for people to escape from the nonstop negative media cycle,” shared co-frontman Cole Becker on the album’s lyrical content. Berkeley’s On Fire will be out in February.
