The Oxford based alternative rock band Swervedriver continued to develop themselves by implementing different music into their alternative rock and shoegaze sound. Their first album Raise can be categorised as an album with a heavy sound, but also some melodic parts.
Their direct approach of the shoegaze sound can be heard by listening to a song like "Rave Down". But they’re mainly focusing on the noisy and distortion guitar lines. While listening to the classic "Son of Mustang Ford" you feel the roaring engine run and are drifting back into the American landscape. It’s one out of the fascinating 9 tracks, with solid hooks and shiny guitar riffs. Twisted relationships get’s their punchline on the epic "Deep Seat". The great debut album meant the start of a great career which haven’t been finished to this date.
