 Critical praise for ‘Giant Swan’:

“An album full of energy and wit, but precise and considered, sonically ambitious. Giant Swan throw their middle finger up to genre constraints, working with their own set of rules” DJ (9/10)

“Giant Swan land with an almighty bang. Noisy techno crafted with West Country Flair”Mixmag (9/10) 

A disorientating and exhilarating foray into the world of the British duo, whose chaotic take on techno feels at once both primal and futuristic” The Fader

“Monstrous and beautiful”London In Stereo 

A devastating onslaught of caustic industrial textures and overwhelming techno power”Complex

“Think Blanck Mass, Battles and Model 500 colliding in bass-heavy explosive perfection and you’re somewhere close. Exceptional”Electronic Sound 

“One tonal foot in the club world and another in a noisy avant-garde one. The result is a heady debut album”Uncut (8/10)

“This is an album for anyone who thought that Blanck Mass had gone soft and poppy. For anyone who thinks that Lightning Bolt has lost their touch and anyone who has ever wanted a group to push things as far as they logically can, without the music being jeopardised”Clash (8/10)

“A gleaming, multi-faceted crystal made of muck and broken glass” The Quietus

“Welds the dark, glassy eyed glamour of subterranean raves to the skittery sonics of experimental electronica”Crack(8/10)

“An LP full of visceral, punk-inspired techno. As much about weed and beats as it is about working towards a more open-minded and inclusive dance experience”The Vinyl Factory 

“It’s aggressive, physical dance music, and they’ve distilled that raw energy into their self-titled debut album” Dummy 

“Ten tracks of bruised and battered electronic body music, it celebrates their outsider status and quietly subversive attitude”The Wire
