Atmospheric sludge rock unit,  THE WHITE SWAN , are pleased to unveil the video accompaniment to their cover of Tracy Bonham's "Tell It To The Sky." Now playing at Metal Injection, the track is featured on the band's  Nocturnal Transmission  EP released last month.

 

Spearheaded by Kittie's Mercedes Lander, alongside Kira Longeuay and Shane Jeffers (Bloodmoon Collective),  Nocturnal Transmission  delivers over twenty minutes of sprawling, melodic sound waves Revolver Magazine crowns, "a gauzy, atmospheric brand of sludgy doomgaze." Elsewhere, Toilet Ov Hell hails, "a brand of passion doom that is truly captivating," New Noise Magazine lauds, "a heroic swell of atmospheric sludge and gothic cascades that will chill you to the bone and leave a patch of frost lingering between your toes," while Rock And Roll Fables champions Lander for "channeling her inner [Melissa] Auf der Maur," and likening the EP duration to, "a spiritual experience."

In December 2019,  THE WHITE SWAN  recorded three songs and a cover of what can only be described as love songs. Lander has penned lyrics that chronicle the joy, desire, longing, and eventual feeling of completeness that comes with a romantic relationship. From the night drives through the snow in the early days, right through to the handcrafted guitar built as a wedding gift from her now husband, the intricacies of true love permeate every moment of  Nocturnal Transmission .

 

Reprising a long-time creative relationship with producer Siegfried Meier, Lander felt both at home and re-energized by the familiarity and collaborative nature of their work. Recording took just two days, retaining many of the hallmarks of  THE WHITE SWAN 's earlier output, but adding a slightly polished sheen to proceedings. With vocal layering and touches of psychedelic synths adding textural elements to the songs, the result is an enveloping experience of fuzzed out guitars and molasses-like melody. Describing  Nocturnal Transmission  as a "turning point" for the band, the album art by collage artist Caitlyn Grabenstein reflects the feeling of standing on the precipice, staring into the unknown. Acknowledging that there will always be a constant sound to  THE WHITE SWAN , Lander states that their main intention is to "grow and grow." With an ever-developing sound and a solid combination of creative musicians in their ranks,  Nocturnal Transmission  is the latest in what is sure to be an ever expanding back catalog of triumphs.

 

"...a gauzy, atmospheric brand of sludgy doomgaze..." - Revolver

 

" THE WHITE SWAN  is the project fronted by Kittie drummer Mercedes Lander, and while Kittie hailed from the early 2000s nu metal scene and went on to dabble in groove and death metal, alt-rock, and more,  THE WHITE SWAN  are more of the psychedelic, atmospheric post-metal variety - fans of Neurosis, Kylesa, Hum, Deftones, etc. should take note." - BrooklynVegan

 

"...a heroic swell of atmospheric sludge and gothic cascades that will chill you to the bone and leave a patch of frost lingering between your toes." - New Noise Magazine

 

" THE WHITE SWAN  sees ex-kittie drummer channeling her inner Auf der Maur... Listening through the debut EP...is akin to a spiritual experience, wrapped up in a dreamstate surrounded by heavy guitars, stirring synths, and a robust rhythm section..." - Rock And Roll Fables

 

"... THE WHITE SWAN  rumbles your guts, rattles your bones...  THE WHITE SWAN  crafts a brand of passion doom that is truly captivating." - Toilet Ov Hell

 

" THE WHITE SWAN  delivers expansive songs driven by heavy guitar riffs and smooth vocals. The tempos are slow and deliberate, with the judicious use of synths adding depth and atmosphere, especially on 'Purple.'" - Heavy Music HQ
