Swerve City is an alternative rock quartet from Auckland, New Zealand, looking to leave an impression on the global rock landscape.

‘Got Trouble’ is the first single from Swerve City’s debut EP, Over Oceans. ‘Got Trouble’ is an assertive opening salvo that promises to get the blood pumping live.

Formed at the dawn of the pandemic, Swerve City sidestepped lockdowns in Auckland City to release a string of singles and play shows throughout the early 2020’s. Garnering features in the NZ Official Hot Charts and the radioscope top 40 rock charts, Swerve City have also shared the stage with some top talent including These Four Walls, Dead Favours and Coridian.

Swerve City’s sound is a combination of tight rhythms, ferocious melodic vocals and transcendent lead guitars. Influences range from alternative rock, 90’s grunge, and post grunge, to modern metalcore, progressive metal and beyond.
