Looms share heartrending single “From A Roof”| New LP out May 3rd Via Good Eye Records
Brooklyn-based band Looms has just debuted “From A Roof,” the second single off of their forthcoming new LP, The Way Up.
The track premiered via Glide Magazine where the band’s Sharif Mekawy detailed, “Half this record ended up being written from the roof of my apartment. A lot came out all at once, and it wasn’t ’til after the song was recorded, that I realized it was actually my own motivation to not kill myself.”
“From A Roof” follows the lead single “Eclipse” which features a guest performance by legendary guitarist Nels Cline (Wilco) and premiered via Relix.
Looms’ third full-length, The Way Up,
out May 3rd via Good
Eye Records. Joined by Harry Morris Jr. (guitar), Andy Murray (bass) and Harry Louis Cozza (drums),
the ten-song album grapples with the life-consuming churn of lost love, “what ifs?” and rose-colored memories that warp over time.
Featuring a guest performance from
guitar legend Nels Cline, “Eclipse” sparks to life as Looms establish a lush instrumental bedrock. Although vibrant in its full band form,
The Way Up’s
lead single goes back to Mekawy’s lonely time up on that roof as an eclipse began, forcing himself to stay up there until the song was completed.
Such is the push and pull at the
heart of The Way Up;
a heart-rending, expansively and beautifully realized full band effort born from a brutal, solitary reconciliation. Listeners who have loved and lost will find a friend in
Loom’s latest effort, no matter where one is in their journey.

The Way Up
is out May 3rd and is the fifteenth release from Good Eye Records.
