SWHAT peddle their own aggressive brand of rock infused punk. Drawing on musical influences such as Bad Brains and Hot Snakes with lyrics and imagery as close, personal and justifiably paranoid as these times demand.
The album has been self produced and recorded in their Ballarat home studio. Restricting themselves to the eight tracks available on the reel to reel recorder and a handful of microphones, SWHAT have taken a minimalist approach with their debut release.
The result stays true to the fine Australian tradition of keeping punk rock fast and to the point. With dirty lo-fi sounds plus a fervent drizzling of harmonies spat on top for good measure. SO WHAT if it’s not pristine, it’s perfectly unspoiled!
