Loma’s enigmatic debut feels beautifully adrift in time and space. It’s an album that takes you to a place you’ve never been, with a rare confidence in the strength of its own vision.

Though it was recorded off a dirt road in rural Texas, there’s no hint of country here: from the first airy notes of ‘Who Is Speaking?’ to the decaying choir of ‘Black Willow’, Loma create a hypnotic world of their own, where rustling leaves, fuzzed-out basses, panting dogs, prepared pianos and a wilderness of percussion form a backdrop for Emily Cross’s translucent voice. She’s a steady, clear-eyed presence throughout, even among the heart-pounding pulses of ‘Relay Runner’, the skittering drums of ‘Dark Oscillations’ and the galloping release of ‘Joy’; in sparer songs like ‘Shadow Relief’ and the haunting ‘I Don’t Want Children’, she’s a fearless ally, swimming calmly with you against a powerful undertow.
