🎧 LOMA – ‘Given A Sign’

LOMA is the work of Emily Cross, Dan Duszynski and Shearwater‘s Jonathan Meiburg. Their latest album, Don’t Shy Away, was recently released on Sub Pop Records. If we’d known what we were going to hear on our very first listen today, we’d have bought this thing the exact minute it came out. Let’s just say, it’s a musical journey, you won’t soon forget.

Check out our favourite album track Given A Sign in the embed below, and be sure to hit up their socials for more going forward. This is a band you don’t want to sleep on folks; Brian Eno didn’t.
