Young Critic: The Swingles with Twelfth Day

The Swingles with Twelfth Day

The Swingles are an excellent folk band, and I definitely enjoyed it. The thing that amazed me was how they didn’t use a single instrument, but it sounded so much like they did. However, they used something called live looping , which is when a computer at the back records it then plays it back so it sounds like an army of them instead of just 7. Every song they performed was based in a country. For example, one was about Afghanistan, and another about Iceland. Also, they were an international group; 2 from America and England, 3 from Canada, 1 from Portugal and the other from Africa. Their only flaw they could have improved on is the range of tempos in the songs. But based on my expectations, I give them 9/10. Overall, the Swingles were one of those bands who are way better than you thought they would be, and I recommend watching them for all ages.
