about

Our third album, and the first one with English lyrics!!! The Shape of Swing to Come features a mix of some of our greatest hits translated to English and re-recorded, and some brand new songs. As always: 100% original music, 100% socialist and feminist lyrics! All in all 12 massive tracks of swing, trad jazz and blues, ranging from sweet ballads to fast and furious swing-punk. Feel the sting of the left wing swing!!!
