Urban Crime by Swamp Music Players
Swamp Rock influences combine with 1980s style Americana and Alt Music to create a LoFi retro-futuristic anachronism.
Really happy about the release of our EP album ‘Urban Crime’ it made a couple chart positions in Canada and The Netherlands and it opened new doors for us with college and community radio stations that never played our music before giving us a first chance. A very fun album to make and we made some Youtube videos as well.
