Swerve Share New Single “Ebbs and Flows”

Los Angeles-based band Swerve share “Ebbs and Flows” (Laurel Canyon Session) a newly reworked version of the single featured on the band’s critically-acclaimed debut full-length album Ruin Your Day out now and first single to be lifted from the band’s Laurel Canyon Session EP. The new single debuted today.

“We’re known for making loud, electric rock music, but most of our songs actually begin on the acoustic guitar, and we’ve always thought of taking them in different directions. I moved to Laurel Canyon just before the pandemic hit and the majority of Ruin Your Day was written there as we were pretty isolated, and the lyrics and feel of ‘Ebbs and Flows’ was inspired by that distance I felt. Obviously, Laurel Canyon is famous for beautiful music that’s not quite rock’n’roll, and we decided to make an EP that nods to that. Louie Schultz, of Army Navy and Nightjacket, played piano and composed strings for the track and did one hell of a job. We’re not going to be abandoning rock anytime soon but wanted to show that there’s a different side to us and we’re capable of pushing ourselves in new and challenging directions. Plus, I just like pretty music. Ryan doesn’t, but he’s being a good sport.” says Swerve’s Gregory Mahdesian.
