The Sweptaways are thirty women dressed up in color-coordinated, thematic or simply stunning costumes, plus an equally stunning choir-mistress who writes the arrangements and directs. Their name was stolen from a less than acceptable Madonna-movie. The songs on the album are ten choir-democratically elected favorites. 'We are a coverband, a band of pirates, a band of pearls. Call US a ladies choir if you so desire. We are the choir that everyone (in the choir) have been longing for.' Here you go, close your eyes, listen and try to envision us. Open wide: say Ooh aah. - the Sweptaways.
