Giant Swan on the Timedance tip with two punked-out, Industrial leaning UK techno heaters (yeah, it’s as good as it sounds).

After making an impressive splash in the UK and Europe off the back of their high-energy, full bruck-out live sets, they make a somewhat unexpected but massively welcome return to releasing with Celebrate The Last 30 Years Of Human Ego and IFTLOYL. Both sides make use of their rough, live-feeling approach to arrangement and space with mono-syllabic shouts and heavily re-constituted guitar screeches punctuating the grooves.

The A side begins with a startle, tearing into its off-beat rhythms right from the get go and maintaining a constant, loping pace that never gets old despite the distorted edge. It’s some of the most rambunctious material to come from both Timedance and Giant Swan and from our experience can seemingly morph any dancefloor into an uncontrolled frenzy.

The B side goes even further into unhinged territory than the A, wearing its UK techno badge in a manner more in line with Regis or Oliver Ho. Doom-signalling vocals are the only real semblance of humanity here. The 4/4 rhythm gallops in an almost comically relentless fashion, the only respite occurring in the ingenious rhythmic jumps in the latter half of the track and the clattering, metallic percussion that provides some off-beat counterpoint.

We’ve been sorely waiting for a follow-up to their wicked release for FuckPunk last year, and this doesn’t disappoint in the slightest.
