Sweeping Promises SWEEPING PROMISES | HUNGER FOR A WAY OUTThirteen years ago, Caufield Schnugand
Lira Mondalbegan making music in a small town in Arkansas. Over the subsequent
decade, having relocated to Boston, MA in 2012, the duo became serial
band-starters on the East Coast underground. Their many DIY projects and
releases established their thrifty and disciplined songwriting practice, known
by few. Sweeping Promises, their latest project, was born in a disused and
reverberant concrete laboratory in Cambridge, MA. Tracked with a self-devised
“single-mic technique” and mixed in mono, the band completed their debut Hunger
for a Way Outjust in time to enter quarantine. With only a single basement show
under their belt, the band received an unexpectedly wide reception, firstly in
online punk circles, and eventually stretching beyond. The band owes their
circulation to the expert coordination of Sam Richardson, label head of
Virginia’s Feel It Records. Sam describes the release: “Angular guitars and
sharp synth notes float atop a raw rhythm section, while Lira Mondal's
effervescent vocals truly define SweepingPromises' sound. There's something
simple yet otherworldly about these tracks -you have the DIY prowess of
Kleenex/LiLiPUT and Girls at Our Best!, a brooding new wave-y minimal synth
sound woven in, and an undeniable pop-leaning appeal captured in vibrant
monaural glory.”Sweeping Promises is currently headquartered in Austin, TX after
fleeing Boston in Covid-time. They are currently preparing for touring (in a
better world) and stockpiling recordings made in Caufield’s parents’ bathroom.
