LISTEN: Swanmeat – ‘Teenage Idol’

Sardonic vocals, grumbling bass lines, and thrashing guitars combine on ‘Teenage Idol’, the latest single from Brighton-based band Swanmeat. The track is a blistering take down of fame, idolatry, and the fleeting nature of both.

Comprised of Owen Bullock (drums), Daniel Cox (guitar), Pippa Jay Rainbird (vocals) and Annabel Whittle (bass), Swanmeat formed in late October of 2018. The band met at college and decided to start making music together when they realised their interests in music and theatrics overlapped.

The raucous ‘Teenage Idol’ is the result of this; as it smacks with sarcasm, frenzied percussion, and chant-worthy lyrics. The four-piece shared their self-titled debut EP in October 2019, and are set to release more music over the coming months. Listen to the ‘Teenage Idol’ below, and follow Swanmeat on Facebook & Bandcamp for more updates.
