Swale started in 2002 as part of the house band for a burlesque revue in Burlington, Vermont. For the most part, Amanda plays the keys, Jeremy plays the drums, Eric plays the guitars, Tyler plays the bass, and all four of them sing the songs.

J Bengoy is bummer-rock that makes you smile. It’s groove-pop that breaks its own ankles. It’s surf-jangle breaking an arm on a medium sized, impressing-nobody kind of wave. It’s heartfelt emo with a shit-eating grin on its face. J Bengoy is a lot of things. They know that you are, too.
