‘Bare Bones’ is the new single from emerging UK alternative rock band SWEARS. A rhythmically pounding, anthemic rock n’ roll track, it takes you into the dark and murky world of SWEARS, describing a late-night drive undertaken as a desperate escape attempt by a narrator at breaking point. Aimless and futile yet raw and urgent, he finds his very being stripped down to its ‘bare bones’ at a moment of ‘outstanding understanding’.
‘Bare Bones’ was recorded at All Silk Recording Studio, Rawtenstall, and tracked, mixed and mastered by Ed Hall (of All Silk Mastering House).
SWEARS are an alternative rock band from Middlesbrough (UK), drawing influences from grunge, punk, doom, and pop. Formed in 2017, the band consists of Joel Clayton, brothers George and Stephanos Louca, and Tom Gingell.
