Ellis Swan “Don’t Wanna Lie”

Here is Ellis Swan dwelling in Chicago with his hazy, fuzzy, old school, vocal punches. Everything about Swan is antique. His lyrics are stories told like they happened straight out of the 30′s or 40′s, when that simple folk started taking over the waves of America. He has this twisted and dark sound that transports you to a cloud of fuzz and black and white images. Many of his tracks remind me a little of David Lynch, the way he sings his melodies, a little less creepy, which for Swan is a good thing. This track “Don’t Wanna Lie” has a heartbeat that you won’t be able to get out of your head it will haunt you with its simplicity and dark lyrics.

Swan doesn’t seem to have any albums out at this time, which is a huge bummer for me. Head over to his SoundCloud┬áto listen to a collection of 9 tracks with a few available for download. Go get lost in that grainy hazy simple time of life and sound.
