Swords are a three piece alternative band from Dublin and Carlow, with members Diane Anglim (vocals & piano), Jarlath Canning (bass, guitars & synth) and Ian Frawley (drums). The band’s sound is known for Diane Anglim’s unique vocal style, set against piano, bass, synth atmospheres & drums. Swords’ have recently completed their second studio album with producer Karl Odlum. It marks a departure in sound from previous releases, the band noting a more considered approach to writing, live recording methods, sparse arrangements and a fuller organic sound. The album is due to be released in late 2016, with new material & live dates promised soon.
