Sway Wild was born on a small island in the Salish Sea. Following a two-month sailing voyage through the remote anchorages of British Columbia, acclaimed indie-folk duo Dave McGraw & Mandy Fer, joined by longtime friend Thom Lord, returned to their San Juan Island, Washington home still hungry to explore. The result was nothing short of an artistic epiphany; an evolution of sound that called out loudly for a new name. Sway Wild will release its self-titled debut album worldwide on September 13th.
Today they share “Comin’ and Goin’” the leadoff track and single. Fer’s voice and electric guitar swoop acrobatically atop McGraw and Lord’s pulsing worldbeat inflections, while Birds of Chicago layer gospel harmonies over accompanied piano and horns. “It’s a song about impermanence…how all things come and go, as do we,” says Fer.
