Brooklyn-based indie rockers Looms released their debut album, Waking Days, on April 14. In celebration, they are premiering the video for one of the singles off the album, "Sunshine," exclusively here on Music Times.
Made up of Sharif Mekawy, Harry Morris Jr., A. Hammond Murray and Zach Eichenhorn, Looms formed in 2012 with a desire to "explore musical frontiers while remaining true to their original sound and influences."
"Sunshine" is about eventually dealing with mistakes and working through their consequences.
"There was a time when a friend and I were living a very intense lifestyle and making some decisions that may not have been the smartest," frontman Mekawy said. "'Sunshine' is about having to deal with some hard truths and consequences we always tried to ignore. In dealing with those consequences, we learned there was another way to live."
The music video for "Sunshine" takes on a vintage feel with black-and-white footage complemented by the song's smooth, laid-back sound.
"I wanted to make a cool found footage video that played on the lyrics in the song and represented the ideas of late night debauchery and insomnia conveyed within," Mekawy said.
The band initially received buzz after performing with the 2012 "New York's Best DJ" Jonathan Toubin at one of the final performances at the Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn. Looms had the opportunity to perform alongside Tommy Siegel of Jukebox the Ghost at Baby's All Right before their newest album was released. The band is set to record some new material this coming year and they'll be playing again at Baby's All Right on May 16.
