Loopy – Doing Somersaults

Loopy don’t change much. They don’t need to and probably never will. They write fab pop songs, indie pop in style and very English sounding. There can be a sneer to the vox at times, but only in a quirky affected way. The title track is Inspiral Carpets and organ led sixties pop. Found By You is dad rock, but weirdly a touch of Americana saves it, Twenty One is a harder Housemartins, rocking out but with a reflective break down, and Love The Way is a ukulele and glockenspiel led twee pop rhyme, rather fine indeed. Hearts Pumping is an over earnest way to finish another good album

Doing Somersaults is out now and available from the Loopy website
