Katie Gately - Loom
86
"This record is for her"

During her mother's battle with cancer, experimental musician Katie Gately writes another enigmatic release, yet putting more emphasis on frantic and nocturnal textures than her previous album with glitchy and infectious songs, "Color". Before her mother's diagnosis, Katie had almost completed a totally distinguishable album, but later on, decided to start fresh on a totally different album. The album was to be centred around the track "Bracer", which was her mother's favourite. In 2018, her mother passed away.

Her vocals seem to be more present here, everything is darker. Lyrically, it is deeply reflective of what she was experiencing at the time. She sonically fuses together manipulated recordings of earthquakes, the howling of wolves and even audio from her parent's wedding. This is a very personal album and another fantastic one too. I do however still prefer colour for its diverseness.
