Music types: Electronic, Rock
Formed in 2003, Swerve emerges from a late twentieth century soundscape into the twenty-first with a clear, precise sense of musical vision and performance. With roots in the synth-pop sounds of the eighties and post-punk undertones, Swerve create a melodious electro-pop, infused with a touch of downtempo, drum & bass, and progressive trance. A four piece, Swerve is fronted by female singer Jaclyn Blankenship, whose voice and persona counter balance the electronic stylings of Jorge Espino and Elvis Sánchez and the percussive, acoustic nature of Jason McGinnis. Strong song writing, melody and rhythm are the foundation to crisp electronic sounds. This mix of the organic and the electronic is best evidenced and brought to life with stirring live performances consisting of occasional guest musicians and a choreographed show of lights and images. Swerve serves a perfect future-pop, a delightful blending of technology with soul. The collectively produced independent album ‘Unmask the Sound’ is that perfect synthesis of the “man-machine”. From the desert of El Paso, Texas, a flower emerges called Swerve.
