EP Stream: Dandy’s Loft – Introspector
Forming roughly three years ago, Lurgan/Belfast group Dandy’s Loft have spent their formative years finding their sea legs and patiently writing and scrapping and re-writing music before finding a sound that they felt warranted release. This patience has proved to be massively beneficial to the four-piece as it has led to the release of a debut EP of four very accomplished tracks, the stylistic foundation of which lies on the likes Interpol and Radiohead as much as it does on that early 00’s glooming folk-rock sound.
Introspector‘s four tracks veer from the throbbing bass, plucked strings and vocal harmonies of ‘Begging Your Pardon’ to the psych-folk of ‘Bad Lime Juice’. Lyrically, the EP deals with ideas of discontent and self-doubt and the frustration of when others do your soul-searching for you. It’s a satisfying, precocious release that will leave you curious and eager to hear more from a group who have taken their time finding their feet. The hope is that they will now start to run.
