The follow-up to 2015's celebrated 'Self Portrait' has a date.
On June 30th, San Francisco's Loma Prieta will usher in their next chapter in the form of Last, which arrives via the always consistent Deathwish Inc. Like the contrasting cover artwork it sports, Last promises a duality of sound bridging glistening melody and sheer rage. Lead single Glare speaks to that exquisitely, alluring listeners with a gentle passage that erupts with a scream, sending listeners down a thrilling path.
Loma Prieta's Sean Leary comments:
"'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)."
