You want some Beatlesque pop/rock by a duo of pop geniuses, one from Canada and the other from Italy? Well SheLoom might just be who you need! Filippo Gaetani and Jordon Zadorozny (and Eric Matthews too) share a knowing appreciation and love for the kind of glistening, sparkling album rock you will most undoubtedly find within a Todd Rundgren, XTC or Al Stewart record from the 1970s. This appreciation showcases an unavoidable influence on SheLoom and their single America On Fire, with the shining acoustic guitars, breathy vocals, elegantly pounding pianos, and a wonderful melody, all of which combines to create a pretty strong testament to pop’s more grandiose past. America On Fire is a lovely first taste of SheLoom’s album The Baron Of The Fjord, which is, like America On Fire, a terrific slice of modernistic/retro progressive pop that is designed to go down like a treat. And it does.
‘The Baron Of The Fjord‘is available now on Bandcamp.
