The Swingles

swingles chorus of westerly

The Swingles are a London-based a cappella septet whose rotating cast of members has been touring the world for over half a century. I first learned about them years and years ago through the Britpop band Pulp, who paired with the group for a particularly obscure number that only ever appeared on the soundtrack to a BBC show about a pair of detectives, one of whom was a ghost. The funny thing about the Swingles is that though they began in Paris in 1962, they were actually founded by a guy from Alabama named Ward Swingle. The original group featured bass and percussion, though the rhythm is now primarily vocal.
