Loom CD Album
Release Date: 21/04/2017
Debut album from band who have been hotly tipped by Radio 1 and NME Loom formed through a shared distaste, boredom, and frustration with new music.
We recorded and released two cassettes within our first year, the latter being a showcase of our most prominent initial influences - a six-track covers ep of The Jesus Lizard, Bad Brains, Pixies, GG Allin, Misfits, and Warsaw. We felt that it was a necessity to broadcast our intent as a band as aggressively and directly as possible. We subsequently received airplay from Zane Lowe and Daniel P Carter at Radio 1, along with continued coverage and Track of the Week in NME for our second digital release.
There was a new wave of dross that people were desperate to call the return of grunge - we knew this fake renaissance would be dead within a few years and didn't want any association with the group of bands that were just trying to capitalize on a trend. Sure enough, it has already died and we can't be pigeon-holed into that scene anymore because it doesn't exist.
The debut album is the biggest statement a band makes. The songs we have written need to be presented exactly how we want them to be. We didn't want to be accused of contrived revivalism. We needed to find the right producers and the right label to understand where we were coming from. We now have that.
