Sugahspank! & The Swing Shoes announce fourth studio album on Thinkbabymusic and live dates
Formed in Athens in 2006 by members of Honeydive (1991) and Cosmic Teds (1990) whilst initially a street guitar duo, The Swing Shoes gradually evolved into a four piece, adding bass and drums. Taking influence from names such as Django Reinhardt, Romane, Duke Ellington, Manolis Chiotis, and the swing folk idiom, Blues, Soul and Gospel, expanded by covers of traditional Greek tunes, jazz standards, and several improvisational numbers; their first album contained a song featuring Sugahspank! marking the beginning of a long-term collaboration that continues to this day.
With the band currently in the recording studio alongside Thanos Amorginos (The Last Drive, The Earthbound, Maximum High), a batch of new music, visuals, along with their fourth studio full length is scheduled for release in 2023 on Thinkbabymusic.
