We (Lara, McKinley and Stephanie) are excited to announce we have recently started a new band called Swan Sovereign.
It is significantly different from Dirty Martini — different enough to necessitate the name change. Steph plays drums, McKinley plays bass and Lara plays guitar. We hope you’ll join us for our official debut show on February 15th with special guests The Cabin Project.
Here’s some info on the band:
Swan Sovereign is a Portland, Oregon trio with punchy, defiant pop songs and harmonies so buttery that you’ll forget to be offended by the bossy lyrics. Stephanie, Lara and McKinley are a tight, spare unit with compact songs that burst from dead quiet into tantrums and back down.
Their old band Dirty Martini was gloomy, introspective and rain-soaked. Swan Sovereign is more like a dance party on a sunny day in Antarctica - bright and blinding, with snowballs flying and a bit of blood on the ice from playing too rough. Swan Sovereign songs about interrogation, family secrets and organized rebellion cut clean and deep. Then they rub salt in with mean 60s girl group harmonies. It leaves a pretty pink scar.
We will debut new songs and twist up some old ones at Doug Fir on Saturday, February 15th 2014.
