Continuum b/w Fate“, a new two song single from LOMA PRIETA, recorded by engineer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker), has been officially announced through Deathwish Inc. label, with the impressive A-side “Continuum” straming in its entirety! is artistic editorial in the self-damning that many face on a day to day basis. Check out the full song below!

Continuum” is artistic editorial in the self-damning that many face on a day to day basis. Playing as an examination of the perpetual motion that contemporary society demands of each one of us. Musically it glides infectiously with new depth and fuzzed out control.

B-side “Fate” uses Pixies-esque lightness to veil the weight of its message before erupting into musical chaos. Here they disguise disgust with melody while singing “Drugs and God the same distractions / Lay on the dirty floor and stare at the ceiling, like it was a planetarium dome”.

Like a lot of Loma Prieta’s stuff, it was recorded by Jack Shirley, but unlike a lot of Loma Prieta’s stuff, “Continuum” finds the band going in a melodic, shoegazy direction. It gets heavier and screamier at the end, but this is much more in the vein of Hum or Nothing or Alcest than what you’d normally expect from Loma Prieta. And it turns out Loma Prieta are really good at this kind of thing too. / BrooklynVegan

Expanding their unmistakeable screamo approach into powerful Fugazi-like territory.

“Continuum” lyrics:

Every Day Is So Surreal
I’m Going To Work
And I’m Calling Out Sick.
I Can’t Get Out Of My Fucking Head
I Guess All The Drug Abuse Isn’t A Real
Attempt Now Is It?

Hiding On The Nighttime Side Of Earth
Never Touched By Sunlight
They’re Tracking My Phone,
They’re Keeping The Minutes
At Least I Know I’ll Never Be Alone.

I Can Feel My Heart Breaking Every Night
Monopoly Dollar
Tree Trunk Painted White
I Took A Loss
They’re Keeping The Minutes
They’ll Coax You Back
The One Dollar Bills Smell Different.

Can’t Drink Poison
And Expect Someone Else To Die
I’m Calling Out Sick
I’m A Body Where My Brain Is.
I Guess All The Drug Abuse
Isn’t A Real Attempt
Now Is It?

The One Dollar Bills Smell Different
Race To The Middle

Movers Moving
Continuum
City Of Broken Glass
Continuum
