Summary

Schwervon! are a two-piece American band born on the Lower East Side of New York City. Nan Turner (Nan & The One Night Stands) plays drums, Matthew Roth (Major Matt Mason USA) plays guitar.

Matthew Roth has been a major contributor to the New York anti-folk scene through his recording studio, record label and online record shop Olive Juice Music. He has worked as a collaborator, producer, and distributor for Jeffrey Lewis, The Mouldy Peaches, Toby Goodshank, Kimya Dawson, Adam Green and many more.

Described as Antifolk, Minimalist Rock, Noise Pop, DIY, and even 90’s Indie Revivalist, their career spans five albums and three seven inches, and are a perpetual experiment between drums and guitar.

A particular reaction to their music has remained consistent, as David Gedge of The Wedding Present so eloquently put it: “I’m not sure how just two people manage to make such a big sound!

Schwervon! takes the listener on a delightful journey onto the other side of pop, a place where creation and contagion can continue to peacefully co-exist.” – God Is In the TV

Schwervon! is that band you fall in love with without realizing you have. A noise-rock duo with the thrash of Sonic Youth, coupled with the down-to-earth tales of love in the real world like Yo La Tengo.” – Deli MagazineIssue 30

Like the White Stripes if they’d been raised on the records of 80s indie heroes The Wedding Present rather than Blind Willie McTell .” – NME

PartyFolk NoisePunk band Schwervon! make cute fun noise out of Big Black blueprint.” – The Village Voice

In September, Schwervon! released a new record on Pavement/ Silver Jews member Bob Nastanovich’s Broker’s Tip Label, and Nastanovich will be joining them as support, spinning tunes as DJ Need a Stack.

The record was released in the US and UK in collaboration with Sea Records. Blood Eagle has already been played on Mark Riley’s BBC6 Radio Show.
