Over the past two years, you’ve seen a handful of pieces on RARAS Farm about Bay Area rockers SWMRS. That’s because they are one of the best things to happen to rock ‘n roll in the past decade. Today, the punky quartet released a fun video for their hard-driving title track “Drive North.”
I remember the first time I saw Green Day a few decades back and left the show knowing that I had witnessed something special. I also realized that the distinctive music they delivered was a fresh and welcome new take on punk rock. Friday night in Orlando, I had the same feeling, watching SWMRS, four talented Oakland, California punks deliver a fiery 45 minute set.
