Sweeping PromisesLondon Calling 2022
Thirteen years ago, Caufield Schnug and Lira Mondal began making music in a small town in Arkansas. The duo are serial band-starters and their latest project, Sweeping Promises, was born in a disused concrete labratory. This vibe, together with their self-devised ‘single-mic technique’ is part of their signature sound. Although the band only had one show under their belt, the online punk circles made sure that the band received a wide reception. Sweeping Promises delivers brooding new wave-y minimal synths with postpunk sounds that are captured in a vibrant, and sometimes pop-y appeal.
