Loom have just released their self-titled debut album and it’s a grunge rock, roll-a-coaster. Based in Leamington Spa and off the back of tours across the UK and Germany with artists including Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Queen Kwong, and Turbowolf along with, a number of headline shows, this band is ready to step into the limelight.
The band recorded half of their debut album themselves and the other half with John Coxon at Ray Davies’ Konk studios and the result will have you jumping around your chosen dwelling for some time to come or, at least the next 30 minutes.
There is an aggression in the songs but, the band never loose the sense of melody so you hear gritty, balanced rock n’ roll throughout. The debut album is the biggest statement a band makes and Loom have spent the best part of four years preparing theirs; Tarik Badwan, Matt Marsh and Joshua Fitzgerald have a bright future ahead!
The album has ten songs and lasts 31 minutes. Opener ‘Lice’ drips Nirvana and sounds like the anthem for the band to open a live set with. ‘Hate’ menacingly follows, then comes a Foo's like 'Get a Taste'.
There is an aggression in the songs but, the band never loose the sense of melody or variety so, you hear gritty, balanced rock n’ roll even when ’Seasick’ gets into Industrial Metal mode.
Lets hope we don’t have to wait 4 years for the next 31 minutes! Have a listen here.
