Emma Swift is an Australian country singer. Her self-titled EP, recorded in Nashville with producer Anne McCue, was nominated for a 2014 ARIA Award for Best Country Album and features the song “Bittersweet”. Emma now splits her time between Sydney, Australia and Nashville, Tennessee and has toured all over the world.
“Everything you want, crashes like a car,” sing Robyn Hitchcock & Emma Swift on “Love Is A Drag,” the deliciously bittersweet celebration of ardor and adoration that marks their second 7 inch release as a duo. The vinyl single/digital download – backed by the equally paradoxical “Life Is Change” – is available from Hitchcock and Swift’s own Tiny Ghost Records.
“Love Is A Drag” and “Life Is Change” were recorded last summer with Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub, Jonny, The New Mendicants) producing at his home studio in Kitchener, Ontario. Hitchcock and Swift sing and play guitar; Blake contributes keyboards and glockenspiel.
