Music Is My Radar: Loop Culture

Hailing from Dublin, Loop Culture have been building both an audience and sound since their formation in 2011. That process has produced the impressive debut single ‘How Does It Feel?’, which now comes with a stylish video clip. The band play the Leixlip Festival with Delorentos, Raglans and Vann Music on May 29th.

We asked them to pick their five favourite tunes of the moment.

The Cribs – An Ivory Hand (Mark)

The first song The Cribs released from their new album All My Sisters – a record that lives up to their incredible reputation.

Neil Young – Lost in Space (Oisín)

I love the melody in this track. It’s got this really soft quality and the lyrics fit in perfectly with it. I discovered it recently on my Mam’s old vinyl so it’s got a history in the family.

The Cure – Just Like Heaven (Nathan)

This was one of the first guitar riffs I learned to play with the band, starting out. It was an early song to spark my interest in messing around with effects like chorus and delay, and has strongly influence my own style and sound.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra – So Good At Being in Trouble (Ronan)

I find Unknown Mortal Orchestras lyrics are so unique but accessible at the same time. That coupled with their individual sound make them a pleasure to listen to.

Blind Willie Johnson – Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground (Andy)

Johnson conveys so much emotion without having any lyrics. Also it’s on the Voyager spacecraft, which is pretty cool.
