Cliffie Swan Memories Come True on LP

2011 Debut from Cliffie Swan featuring Linnea Vedder and Sophia Knapp, Previously Known as Lights

Dislocated hearts, the open road, and the sharp edge of fast emotions, soaring like melodies, flashing by your windows. Tumult and transformation, dangerous and sensual. Those melodies sifting through your hair with the wind of the open country. On the horizon lie sinewy, fuzzy guitars, tightly harmonized vocals recalling the sheen of ‘70s AM radio, funky bass lines, and monumental drums. This is a hyper real version of pop, the colors super saturated, the contrast upped. The songwriting is concise and aims straight for the heart.

Linnea Vedder and Sophia Knapp (previously known as Lights) sing with the voices of angels dragged through Nashville and Laurel Canyon in the ‘70s, crystalline and crying inside. Physically separated by the vast spaces of America during the writing of the album, Linnea and Sophia built 2011's Memories Come True like a bridge across the air. Sophia had relocated to the southwest and drew from her experiences away from the urban megalopolis, while Linnea was back in Brooklyn, continuing to develop her experience in the heart of the city, where both women had started their collaboration.

The songs they wrote reach through the time and space differences and in their way address their remove from one another as well as the eternal need for an "other." Following this unusual process, they met to record raw and alive... Not a debut, nor really a third album (though this is their first release as Cliffie Swan, they'd released two LPs under the name Lights), Memories Come True is equal parts bravado and vulnerability. A story of leaving, perhaps, unrolls over the course of these eleven songs, resulting in an album of absolutely soulful and sultry rock gems.
