Exclusive: Swingin’ Utters Premiere New Song, “Brains”

Punk rockers the Swingin’ Utters will release their new record, Poorly Formed, on February 19. In anticipation, the band is premiering the song, “Brains,” right here right now.

“Jack wrote the music, I wrote the lyrics,” singer Johnny Bonnel says. “This was my favorite music Jack sent me to write a song to. When we went in to record a rough demo for this, it was originally titled ‘He Must Respect The Chemistry’ and needed some tweeking. ‘Brains’ was inspired by my wife, Velvet Underground’s ‘Sunday Morning,’ The Cure, and The Walking Dead. It’s never just one thing!”

The band kicks off its tour later this month in North America and continue on to Australia with the Dropkick Murphys at the end of March. Check out tour dates below the song stream.
