San Francisco screamos LOMA PRIETA release their
first LP in 8 years, called LAST and out on 30 June via
Ahead of it they shared a second taster called GLARE
following the lead single Sunlight.
Sean Leary (frontman): “Glare” is a song talking about the two meanings of the word “glare” and where they intersect. A blinding brightness vs. a hateful stare, more simply, light vs. dark. Within this, a metaphor about how light and dark play with our sight, same as love and hate cloud our mind; Love and hate are so closely tied in the human psyche, becoming confusingly similar in tone when felt full-on. Musically, this track runs the gamut of these strong diametric opposites- beginning contemplative, moving into hatred and rage, concluding with bright, cathartic triumph. The track features an appearance by Loma Prieta’s longtime friend and collaborator Josh Staples (The New Trust, The Velvet Teen).”
Glare is a rough roller coaster shifting space several times, taking the decibels
to an illegal level with deranged guitars, merciless drums, manicial howls and
scary barks. There you go. WOW!
Fast and furious.
