You know that feeling of real excitement but it is nerve wracking? That’s this EP for you. It is warm and sunny but dark and gloomy at the same time. For me, it’s never one or the other. Touch Hungry is not overwhelming either, in fact it’s very calming.
With its stripped back acoustics and clever use of brass instruments, Loopy Bang makes a very lively sound. However the lyrics tell a different story, they range from slightly surreal and metaphoric to downright depressing. While that may be triggering and anxiety inducing for some, I feel like it could resonate with a lot of people. Another thing to note about this mini-album is the impressive vocal range demonstrated by the singer. I’m not going to bore you with the technical details but their voice can range from beautiful lows to awe-inspiring highs.
If you could only listen to one song on this record it would be ‘Trident’. I think the song tells a story of betrayal and heartbreak but also channels sheer, unfiltered emotion. The instrumentation is ethereal and dreamy but the lyrics are a reality check. This EP as a whole is a breath of fresh, conceptual air that your lungs will miss when it’s over.
So if you haven’t already, give Loopy Bang a chance.
