Introducing Our Favorite Alternative Rock Band of The Week: Swallowed Sun


We don't want to be dramatic here, but the sound of Swallowed Sun is the sound we've been missing out on for too long. The first track we listened to by Swallowed Sun was "Strange Motions", and we instantly fell in love. We can probably count on two hands the amount of alternative rock/indie bands that have gave us a certain kind of resonance and fullness when listening to their music. Swallowed Sun is undoubtedly one of those bands, adding to our short (but sweet) list of favorite alt rock bands. Their sound is crisp. Their sound is powerful without being too intense. Their sound is perfect for the musical climate of today. Based out of Atlanta, Swallowed Sun contributes to the music scene in an extraordinary way, and like we said, we only regret not listening to their music earlier!


​The sound of Swallowed Sun's most recent album is absolutely as raw and pure as it gets. "Travelers" showcases the vocalism of Savannah Walker, the crisp and flawless execution of bass from Caleb Hambrick, and the underlying savoury beat of drummer Aaron Hambrick. Swallowed Sun is the kind of band any alternative rock/indie music lover can vibe with. The track can reach out in so many various ways, amusing the musical tastebuds of pretty much anyone. "Travelers" is both soft and heavy-hitting at various points throughout the song. We love tracks that can give us a sense of peace, but also pulsate through our blood--what a mix of emotions Swallowed Sun gives us! The band clearly knows what their sound is, and allow listeners to resonate with their music in such an extended way. "Travelers" will have you feeling upbeat with its surging rhythm. We feel completely refreshed with their music, which is such a hard goal to reach with music--to be able to completely transform the mood of the listener with your music takes a lot of musical skill and authenticity. Swallowed Sun is as authentic as it gets, and their tone cannot be missed out on (seriously, we're advocating for their music 100% here as predominantly alternative music lovers). 

"Travelers" is available for streaming here, and Swallowed Sun's exclusive interview can be found below!
