Swervedriver premiere new song “Autodidact” — listen

on February 04, 2015, 12:20pm

Reunited shoegaze legends Swervedriver have previewed another track from I Wasn’t Born to Lose You, the band’s first new album in over 17 years. Following “Deep Wound” and “Setting Sun”, “Autodidact” finds the band exploring the low-end of their sound. Though the track crackles with feedback and surges of triumphant noise, a certain air of romanticism helps maintain the sweet spot between lush ballad and outright blitzkrieg. Listen in below.
