Having found a way to boost their excitement with Shabooh Shoobah, INXS had a much clearer idea of where they were going production-wise with its follow-up, The Swing. The band knew they needed a big hit to break the album, and they went to New York City's Power Station to work with Chic’s Nile Rodgers, who produced “Original Sin” into the hit it clearly should be. For added publicity and radio play encouragement, Daryl Hall (a true ‘80s megastar) was featured on backing vocals. The remainder of the record was handled by the capable Nick Launay back at The Manor Studio in Oxfordshire, who helped the band extend their beat-driven alternative dance rock while leaving enough space for Michael Hutchence to work out his classic Mick Jagger/Jim Morrison rock-star swagger. Tunes such as “Melting in the Sun,” “I Send a Message,” and “The Swing” show that INXS were clearly shooting for a modern '80s sound of their own.
