THE SWAGGER — Chin Up Boy

Hornsey, North London UK rock four-piece THE SWAGGER play contemporary acoustic pop-rock with appealing, yet coarse-grained, evocations that tend to unite melodious 60’s style harmonies with classic 90’s Britpop posturing.

The snickery vocal isn’t sniffy, it’s proud of its street heritage…

Previously, we reported their sounds reminded us of the “KINKS but also BLUR. In other words — slurred, muddy and hypnotically buzzing...

The new single, titled “Chin Up Boy” (video shared below) has a charming neighborhood attitude…

But it’s also pop-punk in style, in that cheeky ‘n’ homestyle Wheatus / Fountains of Wayne manner.

The snickery vocal isn’t sniffy, it’s proud of its street heritage. And the spreading guitar is like a heavy dose of reminiscence therapy at a nostalgia clinic for the terminally wistful. This is as snappy as a rubber band gun.
