Swearin’ operates and shines like a well-oiled, pragmatic machine. Their
complimentary personalities, solid work-ethic, and similar backgrounds
in DIY punk, have helped them thrive. Formed in 2011 in Brooklyn,
Allison Crutchfield (guitar) and Kyle Gilbride (guitar) had been making
demos for nearly a year before inviting Keith Spencer (bass) into the
equation. The trio eventually added longtime friend and Philadelphia
resident Jeff Bolt on drums, releasing their demo EP What a Dump shortly
The demo received instant praise from Brooklyn’s indie punk scene and beyond. It combined the sounds of Gilbride and Crutchfield’s prior bands (Big Soda and P.S. Eliot, respectively) while stretching into new territories of fuzzed guitars and compounded song structures.
In 2012, Swearin’ released their debut self-titled LP, on which their dynamic and sound fully starts to emerge and flourish. Here, each member brings their own patterns and rolodex of influences to the table, creating a uniquely inviting and complex album. Crutchfield’s vocals are smooth and her lyrics are sharp and personal. Gilbride produces a wall of layered guitars, saccharine hooks, and his own specific ear in the recording process. (He records and produces all of their music.) Spencer makes his first appearance as a songwriter in the band, delivering some of the most diverse songs to the album (‘Divine Mimosa’ and ‘Kill Em’ with Kindness’). Finally, Jeff Bolt remains powerful and heavy while committing totally to servicing the songs.
The album received much critical acclaim and the band went on to do several successful US tours. They have since relocated to Philadelphia and are currently working on the upcoming sophomore LP.
