S.W.A.G.

The Qemists - S.W.A.G.

Radio 1 playlisted 'S.W.A.G. is available to download now at the Ninjashop and iTunes UK. Watch the video in HD here.

Featuring the vocals of sometime Alabama 3 frontwoman Zoe Devlin-Love, 'S.W.A.G.' is one of the most rocking moments from The Qems' widely acclaimed debut album, 'Join The Q', currently at number 1 on the Japanese electronic charts. Devlin-Love had been hanging out with Great Trainrobber Bruce Reynolds prior to recording and some of his attitude runs through her lyrics. The Qemists, meanwhile, more clearly a band here than studio producers, lay down ultra-heavy riffs with evident relish.

Remixes come from a variety of sources. One of Britain's biggest metal bands, Enter Shikari have become great friends of the band after they all toured Europe together and here they lay down a punishing dubstep-rock mix which jumps from acid squelch to headbang and back again. Interface offers up the most straight-up d&b mix of the package, first stringing out the original into something beautiful and ambient and then rolling it out as if there's no tomorrow. Kilon Tek, by contrast, turns a corner into swinging electro-funk.

But what's this 'S.W.A.G' all about? What does it stand for? "We usually say SWAG stands for 'Sealed With A Gun,'" explain the group. "Although sometimes it stands for 'Smashed With A Granny,' depending on who's asking." The Qemists, it seems, aren't going to get caught.
