Loom – ‘Wool’

Loom are a duo that you need to know about this January. Their album ‘Wool’ is an indie rock release fused with excellent musicianship and memorable melodies.

‘Making Nothing’ opens the release and instantly demands the listener’s attention. We adore the attention-demanding riffs and charismatic vocals that are evident from the get-go. The second track ‘A Dull Swim’ is an engaging song with a stunning music video, check it out below.

In addition, ‘Shifting Ticks’ is a stand-out song. We adore the intelligent chordal progressions and charming melodies that stay with the listener long after the music has ended.

Moreover, ‘Magnetic Attractor’ features thought-provoking lyrics that engage the listener and the stunning melodies fill the sonic spectrum with vivid colour.

Finally, ‘Staring Contest’ takes the album in a fresh direction, while ‘Static Web’ brings the release home and leaves the listener wanting even more. ‘Wool’ is an album that needs to be heard to be fully appreciated!

Loom says about the album’s making, “The music was usually developed over a day or few. The lyrics were always written in one less than 24-hour session, with the set rule being to write, record, and send off the demo to Max before midnight.”

Band Members

Loom consists of band members Max Boyd from Athens, GA, who recorded all of the instruments, and Connor Smith, from Portland, ME, who provides the vocals. They formed during the pandemic, and ‘Wool’ is an exciting release that needs to be heard to be fully appreciated.

Also, ‘Wool’ has been superbly mixed by Neil Strauch in Chicago, and mastered by Carl Saff. Together the team have done an excellent job in creating a body of work that will stand the test of time.


In addition, Loom cites their influences as coming from artists such as Weezer, Braid, and Guided by Voices. We can hear these muses coming through on ‘Wool’, but make no mistake; Loom is making music all of their own.
