Hailing from their hometown of Ocean City, Maryland, THE SWELL FELLAS are fresh off of the release of their debut full length ‘The Big Grand Entrance’ in January, and clearly show no signs of slowing down after following up with their 3-song EP ‘The Great Play of Extension’ just a few months later.

The power trio is made up of a pair of brothers, Conner and Chris Poole (guitar and drums respectively) with their longtime friend, Mark Rohrer, a rock guitarist who they begged to buy bass gear. Growing out of their homemade backyard studio, the three old friends have distilled their personal chemistry into something greater than the sum of its parts. With larger than life lyrics inspired by the ebbs and flows of their personal lives, they remain surprisingly grounded for a band who are so prone to interstellar exploration. Furthering their sound, the trio linked up with mixing/recording mastermind Ben McLeod of All Them Witches on the album and EP to breathe life into their compositions and create a truly unique sonic experience.

After countless nights spent in Walmart parking lots with their 91’ Chevy van, highway breakdowns, and rented uHaul’s, THE SWELL FELLAS are building a reputation for packing out small clubs across the East coast, writing modern psych/prog rock anthems dipped in a vat of whatever was in the 70’s punch bowl. Eschewing tropes of stoner and psych bands in the scene today, these small-town east coasters are in it for the long haul with their seemingly unpredictable compositions and face-melting riffage.
