"I've really been enjoying this album lately. There's something unique this Italian crowd bring to their brand of Electro Swing." - Craig Charles Funk & Soul Shows - BBC Radio 6 Music
"Swingrowers have, with this album, cemented their position as one of the most interesting and innovative electro-swing groups on the scene..." - Jack The Cad

"Remote is the sound of a band maturing at a rapid pace" - Juno Download
The Swingrowers (pronounced Swing Growers) release their second, full-length, album 'Remote' on 9th February 2015. It will be available on CD and limited edition vinyl and is available digitally from December 2014.
"Remote" is a revelation. A complete and fully-realised Electro Swing album that seamlessly blends 20's and 30's influences with polished contemporary production; Superb musicianship with great song-writing; a unique modern sound with classically gorgeous, jazz-inflected vocals.
This is the sound of a band (and indeed an up-start young genre) maturing rapidly. [Juno Download]
What marks this out is the departure from any use of vintage samples. Instead, every track, every sound is entirely original - the influences have been fully absorbed. If there was ever any doubt that this genre had a future, then this is the rebuttal. "Remote" is nothing less than a game-changer.
The album was written collaboratively by the new 5-piece Swingrowers. Now incorporating new members on Violin, Clarinet/Sax with the previous Manouche (Gypsy) Guitar, Drums/Keys/Production and Vocals, the album also features a collaboration with London rappers Too Many T's on the story of the sibling rivalry between Django Reinhardt and his brother (Track 6 - 'Django') and is the latest in an increasingly impressive line of releases on Brighton Independent label, Freshly Squeezed.
