AT THE LEFT BANK VILLAGE
The Electric Swing Circus is a live 6-piece fusion of classy 20’s swing and stomping electro beats. Drawing influence from 1920’s swing and jazz, the explosive sound of the Electric Swing Circus reverberates back through time, re-inventing the genre of electro-swing for an ever expanding, multi-generational audience.
The ESC’s sound is an exciting combination of vintage samples, gypsy-jazz guitar, electric double bass, keys, live drums, dirty synths and electro beats. Fronted by a powerful female double-act, with extensive variety of vocal styles, the ESC delivers a consistently dazzling show.
The band are active in the electro-swing scene, running their own annual festival, Swingamajig, and regular club night, Hot Club de Swing, as well as curating acts for events and stages across Europe.
Rocking stages at festivals and events across the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, the ESC have travelled the world and earned themselves a reputation for stunning high energy live shows. There is nothing quite like the ESC on stage, in full costume the band looks great, sounds great and they keep the stage jumping until the curtain falls. With main stage shows at festivals like Boomtown and Shambala, as well as the Avalon stage headline set at Glastonbury 2015, the band have shown they get the crowd moving at any time of day or night.
The new album, “It Flew By”, shows a real development of the ESC sound, with catchy songs, thundering bass lines and soaring vocals. The process has taken almost two years to experiment with the recording process, and discover how best to capture the energy from the live show and translate it onto the record and we are really excited to share the music with the world. Produced by James Bragg (the Skints, Gengah, Dry the River) and recorded between Middle Farm Studios in Devon and Giant Wafer in Wales.
The band first formed in 2011, and have since toured 4 continents, playing major festivals and headline shows all over the world.
The Left Bank Village are SUPER excited to welcome this phenomenal band to our stage, Ladies and Gentlemen, hold onto your hats. The circus is coming to town!
