Now a decade into their partnership, Johnny and Ola started making music together in 2003 on a Tascam 4-track in Bothell, Washington. Reconfiguring their white brick bunker by the Slough (aka the Sammamish River) into a makeshift studio, they wrote and recorded all of Cock & Swan’s material within these close confines. Johnny also began lending his recording and engineering skills to numerous local musicians, notably to Shana Cleveland and her 60s-steeped surf/pop group La Luz. A recent move to West Seattle promises grander musical endeavors for the duo, yet the Cock & Swan sound remains firmly rooted in a hazy, enveloping aesthetic propelled by analogue synthesizers, unplanned samples, muted drums, and faded colors.
