Brooklyn indie band Looms has shared their new track “Dead Time,” which you can check out below, via Earmilk. Releasing their new album The Way Up on May 5th via Good Eye Records, band member Sharif Mekawy says, “This album is mainly about navigating two different relationships I had with women, and ‘Dead Time’ started as a collaboration between myself and one of them. We were on my roof, and I started playing what ended up being the opening guitar riff. Inspired by some neglected planters next to us, she started singing “dead thyme” along with the guitar. It was a beautifully spontaneous moment, and I honestly thought it was going to be our first song together. When the relationship came to a sudden end, I retreated back to the roof for a month and finished writing the record. I changed thyme to time and wrote this song about the end of us.”
