The ambient solo act of Spook The Horses’ guitarist Donnie Cuzins, Loam made music ranging from big synth drones to light pieces laced with delicate electric guitar.

Possibly the final release from Loam“, Clean Carcass (2019) spans the above range in seven tracks.

Previous EP Sonder / Monolith (2017) was a response to seeing Denis Villeneuve’s Bladerunner 2049, and the two synth tracks “are meant to evoke images of towering brutalist architecture, sprawling metropolis and ink-black darkness”.
