UNDER THE RADAR: LOAM – “HERON”

UNDER THE RADAR: LOAM – “HERON”.

Surely Sheffield’s finest, “independent drone pop” act, the three headed musical monster that is LOAM are set to release their new single.

“Heron” begins with anxious, skittering drums, before waves of buzzing synthesisers pulse into earshot. Then singer Laurie Allport croaks in, his grandiose, booming baritone reminiscent of Dave Gahan or Mark Lanegan.

“Heron” is seemingly just the beginning for LOAM with further singles planned for the coming months, ahead of an album early next year. The band suggest it’s not a matter of where this music comes from, but where it’s capable of taking you: music this intriguing might take LOAM a very long way.

“Heron” is out March 10th.
