Those familiar with Swift’s impressive first record will notice the left turn taken on follow-up Call Out For the Cavalry. The classic sound of American roots country fits him like a glove. One would think from listening to assured tracks like ‘Reckless Desires’ and ‘Ball & Chain’ that Swift has been plying his trade in the Australian alt-country scene since he picked up a guitar. But this is new territory for Swift and he’s quickly acclimatized.
“So much has changed for me musically between the first album and this one,” says Swift. “In hindsight, I think I was floundering around the Melbourne music scene, not too sure of where I belonged."
