Swirl 360 was a melodic pop-rock band founded by brothers Kenny & Denny Scott, who originally started of as a duo. Due to some label switching, the band has since been re-named to Killing Sky.
Swirl 360 was signed to Mercury Records and entered the studio in 1997. They recorded half of an album by December 1997 to a promising response by label executives. By summer 1998, the resulting album 'Ask Anybody' was released; The single "Hey Now Now" was a hit at radio and the album received glowing praise from Rolling Stone among others.
Unfortunately for Swirl 360, the album did not perform as well as many had expected it to. During the late 90's, Polygram (Mercury Records parent label) merged with Universal Music Group, which ultimately ended up in Mercury Records dissolving into Island Def Jam Records. The timing of the merger was not in Swirl 360s favor, as many staff working with the band were laid off. Universal cut off funding for the album's promotion, and the band was eventually let go from the label.
