Loma is a new band consisting of Shearwater singer Jonathan Meiburg and the two members of Cross Record (Emily Cross and Dan Duszynski). They are releasing their self-titled debut album on February 16 via Sub Pop. They previously shared a video for the album’s closing track, “Black Widow,” as well as the audio for the Krautrock-y “Relay Runner,” and then a video for “Relay Runner.” Now they have shared another song from the album, “Joy.” Listen below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Meiburg had this to say about the song in a press release: “There was something special about the combination of the three of us, and very different from either of our bands. But I think we were afraid to say so out loud, for fear of jinxing it. I remember the hairs on the back of my neck standing up when Emily hit that high, screaming note on the clarinet on ‘Joy’; it sounded like a human voice.”

Meiburg met Cross Record when the duo opened for Shearwater in 2016. “I couldn’t believe all that sound was coming out of two people,” Meiburg said in a previous press release. “They were mesmerizing…. I fell in love with their music, and I wanted to know how they did it.”
