BARDO Magazine Issue 1 - Page 23

Kris Lavin just graduated university. He's in the real world now. Ugh, I know, the real world...

When he's not writing articles and conducting interviews for DIY and GoldFlakePaint in the UK, Kris is making music as Real Swell. With two albums under his belt, the lo-fi Londoner seems to have found a staple sound. It's a concoction of new-wave synths, unsteady in tone, dancing along a hum of tape reel with acoustic guitar anxiously added into the mix.

I chat to Kris over Facebook, because it's 2015.
