Loma (Shearwater + Cross Record) share new video, announce tour
Loma, the new project of Shearwater frontman (and former Okkervil River member) Jonathan Meiburg and Cross Record members Emily Cross and Dan Duszynski, have shared the video for "Relay Runner" off their upcoming self-titled debut album (due 2/16 via Sub Pop). Emily Cross co-directed the video with Allison Beondé, and they filmed it in Monahans Sandhills State Park. As for the song, it's rich-sounding melodic indie rock that fans of Loma's related bands should instantly dig. Emily Cross says:
This song is about transitioning from one state to another... specifically from the feeling of being boxed in and trapped to the feeling of freedom and liberation. It is about the ongoing drive to attain that movement. I think of the 'relay' as the endless series of versions of yourself that each hand off to the next version of yourself. Beyond that, I wanted to express unbridled joy--for being alive, for moving my body, for being able to build myself a human dog agility course from supplies I bought at the Home Depot.
