New York’s legendary underground rock label Tee Pee Records is thrilled to announce the official release of “Who Do They Think They Are?”, the debut album from Pittsburgh-based Swiss-American quartet, Sweat.
After leaving her home in Basel with a heart hungry for authentic vintage rock, it didn’t take long for vocalist – organist Sue Pedrazzi to settle into her new home alongside Steel City gemstones; Richard Stanley (Rich the Band), Dan Hernandez (Limousine Beach, Cruces) and Kayla Schureman (Century III).
Together, the foursome formed Sweat; a traditional band with fresh and energetic new ideas that set out an attractive stall for fans of British prog rock sensibilities, fragile American folk and heaps of 70s schmaltz. Drawing influence from the likes of Deep Purple and The Moody Blues, the strutting beat of The Who, and the wailing highs and broken lows of Heart, their debut album will receive an official release this May.
“We couldn’t be more stoked to release our debut album with Tee Pee Records”, exclaims Pedrazzi. “The album provides us with a source of self-actualization; both as individuals and as a band. It is an intimate, retrospective lament and it exposes us in such a way that words never will”.
Lovingly enveloping all they borrow, while seeking to become the music makers behind your new favourite records, ahead of the release of their album, embark on a journey with Sweat and their brand-new single “Dark Horses (White Lies)” the brooding and electric follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed debut single “Jane”.
“Who Do They Think They Are?” by Sweat is released on May 26th, 2023, via Tee Pee Records. Pre-order & pre-save the album here.
