coming soon: recorded poem documentations

 

upcoming: length of a candle (ep), 2019

                   if death, then love, (ep), 2019

 

A minimalist strumming style to say the least, with an absolutely beautiful, haunting voice. In a way, she struck me as a bit of a female Thom Yorke, except without any trace of pretension.

 

- Consequence of Sound

 

 

Once you’re able to get past the beguiling voice, you discover her quietly profound, deceptively simple lyrics. Epyllion weaves an incredibly rich tapestry of a nearly spectral world where a pixie-like young woman discovers love and death; It's magical. 

 

- Bone Rolling Reviews

 

 

After several iterative imaginations, LOOM’s hypnotic perturbations are wholly realized within Epyllion‘s twilight embrace. Tenuous cinders warm the mesmeric dissonance embedding LOOM’s succession into dactylic grace and splendid nylon minimalism; a transfiguration well worth Epyllion‘s meditative endurance. Existing in a plane beyond idyllic notions of folk, pop, and mellowtude, the album emerges between disparate walls of sinusoidal classification, unveiling the lingering ashes of lysergic ritual. Grip gently.

 

- Aaron Levin, Weird Canada

 

 

The track [Around Again- Island Mix] builds on a dense guitar sound and Manning's silky smooth vocal delivery that eventually climaxes with a distorted second vocal track and some super minimal drums. Sonic indicators from Julie Doiron and slowcore pioneers like Low are definitely at play, but this song stands on its own and points to potentially great things on LOOM's debut.

 

- Exclaim

 

 

The voice of Canadian Brooke Manning a.k.a LOOM could almost make me forget that the main function of heart is that of ejecting blood and not that of beating so hard it escapes my chest. My blood is nonetheless filled with her tone, floating and irrigating each cell eager with life... I love her capture.

 

- Delicious Scopitone, France
