THE WHITE SWAN

"Dirty sludge synth rock."

Not the way you'd expect to describe a band called The White Swan, but one listen to the Canadian trio's debut EP, Anubis, and the muddy picture becomes clear. Launched by drummer turned vocalist/guitarist Mercedes Lander (Kittie), The White Swan bleeds warm '70s flavoured Black Sabbath doom mixed with classic '90s grunge, creating a trademark sound within the space of only three songs. Backed by Kira Longeuay (bass) and Shane Jeffers (guitars), Lander's previously unknown vision for her music has taken on a life of its own and has been met with praise by the open-minded legions of the rock and metal community.

The White Swan is:

Mercedes Lander – drums, vocals, keyboards, guitar
Shane Jeffers – guitar
Kira Longeuay – bass
