The Swang Effect formed early 2012, mixing traces of the The Buzzcocks,The Clash, Zounds, and Primal Scream with Oasis-sized confidence and DJ Shadow-influenced electronics. The band named themselves after a controversial acid trip experiment in 1968, which to this day has been strongly denied. Communal life and a slew of shared influences produced an electronic, rock-oriented sound that harked back to the days of New Wave & Madchester days of baggy pants and druggy dancing. The Swang Effect expanded that sound in their live shows, but the band's foundation remained rooted in swaggering, fragmented dance textures and boisterous rock & roll.
