Biography

In a time when everyone who isn’t Laidback Luke is claiming to be a “disco act”, there is an insurmountable wash of pretenders. Australian trio The Swiss, however, are a legit live disco band who’s existence is based entirely on flavour and good times rather than the Cobra Snake and fitted caps. (NERDY BIT: They are a band who are getting Giancarlo Meo tattoos rather than looking up Giorgio Moroder best-of tracklists)

The Bubble Bath EP on Modular Recordings is testament to what lies at the core lifestyle of The Swiss: crisp and snappy drums, quicksand laser-sludge bass, dizzy pops & flourishes, melody rays and synthesised strings that glide on the thermal currents of life. It’s as much a breathy telephone call as it is a mid-range Bordeaux shared between ensconced lovers. Beyond the raw and sensual output of the band themselves, the tracks have been remixed by international heavyweights Tensnake, The Glimmers & Knightlife.

Beyond signing to Modular, lighting up the Australian festival circuit, getting “Bubble Bath” added to rotation on national radio station Triple J, supporting Ladyhawke on her Australian tour and melting the faces of thousands of party-goers on a national tour of their own, the boys were invited to the old world to spend three weeks playing to packed rooms from Glasgow to Barcelona to Paris to Amsterdam. The Swiss’ journey to the centre of 4/4 has so far not gone unnoticed.
