LIKE TORCHES REVEAL NEW TRACK AND MUSIC VIDEO FOR “SWING BY SWING”
Lead singer Jonathan Kärn comments: ‘Swing By Swing’ is the first song we wrote when we began the writing process for our upcoming album ‘Shelter.’ It’s probably the song that reminds me most about our first record ‘Keep Your Head High’ and I think our fans will appreciate that. It is probably one of the ”poppiest” songs on the record, but still with a hint of Nordic heaviness, so I’d say it definitely has more edge. Lyrically the song is really just about how messed up and broken our society is.”
