Meet Loathe, the band who refuse to have their sound pigeon-holed
Liverpool’s Loathe mix brave concepts with fiendishly inventive sounds
Few bands wish to be confined to easily categorisable genres, even if they do little to differentiate themselves from a horde of similar-sounding acts. While Liverpool upstarts Loathe are also keen to stand out from the crowd, they actually back up their desire with debut album The Cold Sun: a dizzying, uneasy affair that throws all manner of sounds and ideas at the wall and yet makes them all stick. The only comparisons that can be made are with other pioneering acts who refuse to be shackled by tags and parameters.
