The Swipes's Information
The Swipes, hailing from
Frankfurt/Main, are known for their
individual yet catchy sound. The
four-piece has developed an - as the
press says - electrifying sort of
sixties-influenced rock, rounded off
with a pinch of indie-punk and ska.
They consider this blend as a German
answer to the garage rock revival of
the 2000's, a style belonging to the
sphere of bands like The Hives, The
Strokes, The (International) Noise
Conspiracy and co.
In April 2010 The Swipes became
co-winners of an online contest run by
Bruce Springsteen's guitarist Steven
Van Zandt and were presented on ESPN's
NASCAR motorsports TV program.
Moreover the quartet is frequently
getting airplay and being interviewed
by public service radio stations and
commercial broadcasters with a high
coverage - plus by countless city-,
college- and web radios.
