Astral Swans

Calgary, AB

There’s a simple yet resonant power in lyrical earnestness and bare-bones guitar jaunts. Astral Swans—nom de guerre of Calgary’s Matthew Swann—knows this better than most. Swaying through folky, lo-fi tracks with an omnipresent poignancy and acerbic wit, these Swann-songs are an affirmation of life.
