In November, Los Angeles-based Indie/Alternative Rock outfit Louden Swain released their tenth studio album, Feelings and Such. The quartet have now shared a look behind-the-scenes of the ‘making of’ Feelings and Such in the music video for the album single “Wine And Roses.”
Fronted by actor/musician Rob Benedict, who was recently cast on Season 4 of Amazon Prime’s The Boys and is best known for his recurring role as “Chuck/God” on the long-running CW hit series Supernatural, the group also includes co-founder/bassist Michael Borja, drummer Stephen Norton and guitarist Billy Moran.
Benedict comments on the single:
‘Wine and Roses’ is about being quarantined in 2020. It reflects on the past few years and struggling to maintain sanity, specifically being isolated in a small room, losing touch with reality.
Louden Swain is celebrating its 25th anniversary and have developed a unique approach to touring due to Benedict’s fanbase surrounding his role on Supernatural. The band appear at fan conventions specific to the show which are held across the globe monthly and fans see Louden Swain perform as the house band between actor’s panels along with booking a headlining gig that’s open to both convention attendees and the general public.
Their latest album was co-Produced by Louden Swain and longtime collaborator Zackary Darling (The Temptations, John Waite). Though the album commits to an optimistic outlook, it also reflects the struggles of all the band members during the pandemic, ranging from divorce to losing loved ones and battling cancer.
