Loop – Afterglow

Beautiful, sinister, sultry and sadistic, in parts tender yet in others terrifying, the soundtrack to a nightmare and equally an erotic dream, humbling but empowering, warped like a doomed romance is magnetising; no matter the chosen description, the songs of Loop certainly give you something to think about and our Track of the Day ‘Afterglow’ may just be the epitome of all the above.

Formed in 1986, by frontman and guitarist Robert Hampson, Loop had been knocking around for some time, a few lineup changes, new projects (I must mention ‘Take Control’ by Hair and Skin Trading Company) and solo jaunts, eventually brought the brand to a halt after their third, and often deemed finest, studio LP ‘Gilded Eternity’ back in the 90′s.

After reforming last year to play the last ever ATP festival, Hampson and his men have been haring it around the globe; Austin played host to Loop at its psych fest recently and now the South London space rockers have descended on Spain’s golden sands for Primavera Sound.
