An initial search engine query for the word 'loom' returns findings on arts, crafts and sewing. A secondary search using the phrase "loom band" will give you more information than you ever wanted to know about colorful silicone bracelets. But third time's the charm if you question Google on 'Loom Music.' At that point you'll be invited to learn about the band from Brooklyn that has a following the world over.
We couldn't put our own spin on a Loom bio without stitching in a few fun facts about how the band built its following. Sure, they've toured extensively in the United States and Canada, but they've also played some huge festivals along the way including SXSW, Pop Montreal, CMJ and many others. The band was also featured in Paste Magazine's "Best of What's Next" series and New York Times even called them the "next big thing."
The Loom released its debut full-length album, "Teeth," back on November 1, 2011 on Crossbill Records to critical acclaim from the likes of NPR, AOL/Spinner, TimeOut Magazine, Fader, Consequence of Sound, and others. The single "For the Hooves that Gallop, And the Heels that March" was the first official single from the project, and the release was bolstered by a national tour in 2011 and 2012.
The Loom are currently working on their second full-length album with producer Kevin McMahon (Titus Andronicus, Swans, Real Estate) at Marcata Studios.
