Jeremy Loops is soon to return to Australian shores on the back of his brilliant new album ‘Critical As Water’, the follow up to his critically acclaimed debut ‘Trading Change.’
The album, released March 16, is deeply poignant to the real water crisis in Cape Town, South Africa, Jeremy’s home town. Within striking distance to be the first major city in the world to run out of water, taps to homes will be turned off on 22 April 2018, in an environmental crisis that sees the devastating backlash due to political mismanagement, unsustainable consumption, and dangerously changing climates. And so when these themes come up in songs like ‘Flash Floods’ and a hauntingly beautiful ballad called ‘Vultures’, a more terrifying or apt backdrop to the album’s release cannot be conceived.
Though some of the material is about bleak aspects in the world, Jeremy says ‘it isn’t all doom and gloom. If anything, this is the most beautiful piece of music I’ve ever made and it’s warm and lush, but the joyful highs are tempered by the real urgency of the problems the world is facing. Times are always changing. We all have the innate ability to flow like water to adapt to it. I like that about life, and I especially like how that comes across on this album. It feels wonderfully rounded.’
With elements of folk, indie rock and something entirely fresh and different, Jeremy Loops gives us a great taste of something to come in an already promising start to his musical career.
