Vevo and SWMRS have released live performances of the Oakland band’s songs “April in Houston” and “Too Much Coffee.”
There’s never been a band quite like SWMRS, the Oakland quartet that combines the caustic broadsides of The Clash, the amphetamine bubblegum of the Ramones and the searing lyrics, propulsive energy and raw honesty of Public Enemy, Frank Ocean, A Tribe Called Quest and Kurt Cobain.
SWMRS consists of childhood friends Cole Becker, Max Becker, Joey Armstrong and Sebastian Mueller, who decided to start fresh after the dissolution of their previous band, Emily’s Army. They self-released their debut album, Drive North, in 2016, before signing to Fueled By Ramen to drop Berkeley’s On Fire
