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.

About Antonia:

As Antonia, musician Adriana-Lucia Cotes creates highly personal, fascinatingly complex, and altogether extraordinary electronic pop songs. Cotes has long been a staple of D.C.’s diverse and far-reaching music scene, and with this solo project her multifaceted talents are on full display. “Church,” the first single on her upcoming album, glides with smooth synths and subtle beats as she gracefully sings about a personal turmoil with poetic precision: “The glances from the people across the room have noticed/ My pained eyes as I feel a wanting in womb, I’m burning/ And I feel the crashing of my sins, I’ve got no alms for a lying church.” – Matt Cohen of Washington City Paper
