Formed in 2005, Loma Prieta have been a mainstay of the Bay Area hardcore community for a decade. While Loma Prieta’s sound is difficult to describe, it is clear that they come from the tradition of creative Bay Area hardcore bands such as Mohinder, Funeral Diner, Bread and Circuits, Yaphet Kotto, and Indian Summer. Eschewing sub-genres in favor of organically writing songs that are personally fulfilling. Ultimately making each recording unique, while managing to forge a distinctive voice all their own.
Loma Prieta’s “Love” EP features “Love” from their “Self Portrait” album, as well as the exclusive B-Side, “Trilogy 0 (Debris)”. Both songs were recorded during the “Self Portrait” sessions with engineer Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden Recording Studio (Deafheaven, etc).
