The White Swan (2017-Present)

The White Swan is:

Mercedes Lander – drums, vocals, keyboards, guitar
Shane Jeffers – guitar
Kira Longeuay – bass

“Dirty sludge synth rock.”

Not the way you’d expect to describe a band called The White Swan, but one listen to the Canadian trio’s debut EP, Anubis, and the muddy picture becomes clear. Launched by drummer turned vocalist/guitarist Mercedes Lander (Kittie), The White Swan bleeds warm ’70s flavoured Black Sabbath doom mixed with classic ’90s grunge, creating a trademark sound within the space of only three songs. Backed by Kira Longeuay (bass) and Shane Jeffers (guitars), Lander’s previously unknown vision for her music has taken on a life of its own and has been met with praise by the open-minded legions of the rock and metal community.


Named after the T-Rex song, The White Swan’s debut boasts two original songs and a cover of the Wings classic “Jet”, penned by Paul McCartney of The Beatles fame. The band makes no secret of the fact Lander is the principle songwriter but she is far from being a dictator, preferring to view The White Swan as a team effort.
