nowHere "Swirlpool"

Hailing from Regensburg, Germany, and founded in late 2017, Swirlpool delivers an exceptional mix of highly energetic Shoegaze and floating melodic ambiance. By dealing with the aesthetics of contrasting sounds the four-piece creates unique dreamscapes with a pinch of deep, warm melancholy. Swirlpool consists of Christian Atzinger (Bass), Thomas A. Fischer (Guitar & Vocals), Jonas Heckelsmüller (Drums), and Markus Kraus (Guitar & Vocals).

The first EP entitled “Camomile” contains four tracks and was released on Reptile Music in May of 2018. After numerous shows in Germany and Europe, the band recorded another two tracks in mid-2019. The first being “Spinning in Reverse” which was released in July of 2020 has already been titled a modern classic with an expansive wave of sound that swells and revs with ease.

Swirlpool is currently working on Its first full-length record scheduled for release sometime in 2021.
