Whitburn indie pop band Lord Swans are celebrating the release of their third single.

Following critical acclaim for their previous releases, the four-piece have unveiled their latest single, Listance.

Since launching onto the live circuit last year, the band have enjoyed numerous plays on BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 6, and support slots alongside Coasts, Young Kato and Pretty Vicious.

As a further boost, BBC’s Huw Stephens highlighted the band as ones to watch on his Radio 1 show.

With a sound compared to the likes of Biffy Clyro, Foals and Circa Waves, the band hopes their new release will bring them to a wider audience.

The band recorded the single at Y Studios in Tyneside with one of the North East’s most promising young producers, Anth Snowdon.

Songwriter and vocalist Matt Bulmer said: “Listance is a really upbeat track.

“We worked really hard with Anth Snowdon on the production of this one, that’s why we love it so much.

“It’s a song we’re really proud of in all aspects. 

“The song title is a nice sounding nonsense and I think people will like it because it’s so easy to listen to.

“We’ll be announcing our UK tour dates in the early part of next year.”
