The Swerve is Mikael Johnston (guitars, synth, programming), D1 (guitars, synth, programming) and Jana Hanavan (vocals). This trio of talent has crafted a sound that encapsulates the essence of bliss - their first debut single, “Wonder” - captivating organic Indie/electronica tunes for the modern listeners discerning ear.
Neither exclusively organic nor exclusively electronic, The Swerve is a band that find themselves redefining the parameters of modern music, oozing with texture and experimentation with both live and acoustic elements. Quirky, warm and highly original, The Swerve’s debut single Wonder brings a breath of fresh air. Think Portishead, Cocteau Twins, Air or even Ladytron, with psychedelic undertones and heavy synth, The Swerve simply have pedigree. With five different versions of “Wonder”, each remix reinforces a sense of cinematic timelessness, with a healthy twist.
Mikael Johnston is known for his electronica partnerships as one part of Mephisto Odyssey, as well as one half of Dresden and Johnston. Together Johnston and D1 are the production wizards behind The Swerve. They are complimented by Hanavan, who cleverly weaves together vocal textures and admits she “sings in color’. All three members are part of the rare chemistry that forms the signature Swerve sound, which is equal parts sexy, visceral, conceptual, and delicate.
The future looks bright for The Swerve, with yet another single to be released in the coming weeks featuring Casa del Mirto. Keep an eye out for The Swerve.
