Bio:

Astral Swans is Matthew Swann - a human song-maker specializing in abstract narratives of lonerism, frailty, absurdity, and whimsy, all told with darkly comedic empathy, and helpless concern.

In 2015 Swann gained prominence as the first artist signed to Madic Records, an imprint of Arts & Crafts helmed by Juno award-winning musician Dan Mangan, and created for the purpose of releasing Swann’s debut All My Favourite Singers Are Willie Nelson. The album received widespread acclaim, Noisey described it as “a stark, beautiful project that embraces darkness rather than shying away from it.” The Calgary Herald called Swann an artist of immeasurable depth, incredible smarts, remarkable bravery and infinite charm, creativity and insight.

2018’s Strange Prison (co-produced by Preoccupations’ Scott Munro) earned even more attention including accolades from Paste, Tiny Mix Tapes, Post Trash and a host of others. The album’s single CONTROLS reached number one on CBC radio 3 which led to a performance on CBC q, which highlighted Swann’s ability at “grabbing listeners' attention and holding onto it.”

After three and a half years of tours & covid tour interruptions, Astral Swans is back with his self titled record Astral Swans. For this album Swann almost exclusively composed the songs internally on solo walks throughout various cities around the world (pre-covid), and the same city over and over again (during covid). As Swann describes it, “the melodies were written in my head, on long walks alone, like spontaneous flowers sprouted from the id; ecstatic downloads from the cosmos. Sometimes the lyrics appeared with the melodies, other times they were refined more consciously, after the fact.”
