Swil Nation / Bio

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Swil is BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stay tuned for new music coming soon!!!

Swil was a short lived, yet energetic band formed in early 03' and parted ways unceremoniously almost 3 years to the day. Very young and naive, Swil set out to try to make a name in Portland. Without the experience, there were often mistakes in their live performances, though often dismissed by most fans and patrons of venues, due to the charismatic frenzy that Swil would throw at you. From nice soft love ballads, to some straight up punk rock, to some hardcore thrash, Swil LOVED to come at you from a new angle with each and every song they would write. Hopefully you will enjoy Swils’ basement recordings, and might remember a show or two you might have attended. This site is in memory of one of the best-worst bands Portland had to offer early this millennium, welcoming a new age, all the while keeping with the roots of experimentation.
