Astral Swans (2019)

Calgary, AB

Astral proprietor Matthew Swann writes soft and swimmy music that sounds the way the sky looks when it’s reflected in one of those oil-rainbow puddles that collect on the streets after a prairie evening rain blast. But even as they’re evaporating into the psych-folk darkened atmosphere, Swanns’ songs have an ugly-duckling honesty keeping them grounded.
