"The Swing Movement formed September 2006 on the brow of Ilkley moor out of the ashes of various juvenile projects. Merely a year later the band had toured Belgium, played Leeds Festival and sold out shows at local Leeds/Bradford venues such as The Cockpit and The Love Apple. Since then they have reached new levels. 2008 saw them play the In The City festival in Manchester, support a host of acts ranging from Yeasayer to Team Waterpolo and an airing on one of Match of the Days esteemed montages. However there is more to The Swing Movement than music. Along the way they have rafted down the River Wharfe on a mattress and set a quiet London suburb alight. Musically, support has come from Huw Stephens of Radio 1 fame, who said “it was the best demo I received all week, Shack legend John Head and Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham."
