Then check out Super Hairy, an up and coming Electronic Rock duo featuring Jonny Swift and Zack Tomlinson. Jonny and Zack have been successfully creating music together since 2005 when they founded and performed in Empire, a Rock band with melodic bass lines, heavy drums, and wailing guitar solos. While always staying true to their Rock and Roll roots, both members realized that music was moving forward into an Electronic era. Using this knowledge, their mastery of music, and their overall amount of body hair, Zack and Jonny evolved into Super Hairy. Super Hairy bridges the gap between Rock and Roll and the future of music: Electronic. They call this genre “the New Rock and Roll.” Drawing on influences from artists such as Pretty Lights, Ratatat, and The Glitch Mob, Super Hairy blends electronic synths, sick beats, and samples with overdrive guitar and heavy bass lines, creating a euphonic sound that will shake the house and knock your socks off!
