Current Swell with Close Talker
Grammy-winning producer Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Tom Waits, Norah Jones, Cold War Kids, Of Monsters and Men, James Bay) produced Current Swells third Nettwek Records Realease, When To Talk and When To Listen. Like all good rock ‘n’ roll should, When To Talk And When To Listentouches on all facets of the human condition, from the heartbreak and spurned love of first single “It Ain’t Right” to a pair of songs about loss that form the emotional core of the album. The group as whole found a new level of confidence on the recording. Some of that can be credited to King, who pushed Current Swell to find a new side of their artistic selves, Stanton says. “He would never say something just to say it.”
Current Swell's track record in its home country includes two No. 1 singles on iTunes Canada’s rock chart and a Top 10 record on the commercial rock charts in Canada for 2014’s Ulysses. But all signs point to When To Talk And When To Listen – an album of rich songwriting and vibrant musicianship – casting a much wider net.
