Switchmen: It’s straight-ahead and gut-wrenching rock. It jams to oblivion, seemingly lost and spacey, and at other times, is narrowly calculated enough to hit your ear drums and pierce them at crushing decibel levels. It can even get a little folky. For example, the song “Roses” certainly presents a stark contrast to more aggressive tunes like “Rambunctious” and “Baptized.” Listen to “Roses” below:

Switchmen, who reside in both Lexington, Kentucky and Nashville, Tennessee, have garnered plenty of attention from their rock song “Rambunctious” that is rapidly gaining views on YouTube. The count sits at almost 162,000 views at the moment. Check out the video below:
Their new EP Sex ‘n’ Politics will be released at some point in 2013. Switchmen are playing the RAW Natural Born Artists’ DISCOVERY this Thursday at The Cannery Ballroom.
