About SWOLL: Swoll is the minimal bass-centric electronic project of Matt Dowling (The Effects, Paperhaus, Deleted Scenes). After the dissolution of Dowling’s previous project Deleted Scenes, Matt started working with Benjamin Schurr(Br’er/Blight Records) on a series of sparse, melancholic yet hooky new songs. Utilizing limitations as a compositional tool, the duo focused on a spare sonic palate of old drum machines, bass, mellotrons and haunting synths. Stylistically Swoll marries elements of pop, electro, rock and trap with major emphasis on low end grooves. Dowling’s falsetto floats atop chugging bass lines as a stark contrast to the dark growling beats, giving the music both an intimate and powerful presence.
