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, 2018 via Sub Pop. They previously shared a video for the album’s closing track, “Black Willow.” Now they have shared another song from the album, the Krautrock-y “Relay Runner.” They have also announced some tour dates. Check out the song and dates below.

Meiburg had this to say about the song in a press release: “‘Relay Runner’ was the happiest accident on the record. We discovered it when we wired up a tremolo pedal the wrong way, and got this funny, stuttering loop - and then we built a whole song around that sound. The last thing we did in the mix was erase the loop, which had gone from inspiring the song to ruining it! But it made sense that what was left underneath was a song about how to escape from a sealed room.”

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.”
