There's potential for By Light We Loom to transcend the niche world of indiepop too, and you need look no further than 'Scientist' to see why. With a fully-realised sound, heaps of melody and a strong, slightly soulful vocal, it crosses into alt-pop territory without seeming engineered for a mass market. The music is simply good enough and universal enough to warrant one. It's no one-off either. 'Caught In The Tide' is also cleanly produced to give a clarity that allows the individual parts to not go unnoticed - it's the antithesis of groups that use heavy distortion, reverb and echo to achieve a full sound, By Light We Loom do so using subtly detailed and intricate layers. Even more tunefulness is ploughed into 'Clouds Will Cover Us' which is maybe the biggest production of all thanks to the sea of backing vocals that envelop the chorus and give the song even more lift. 'Cardinal' is similarly considered and has the same attention to detail and memorable melodies that permeate this EP, making sure that there's never a dip in quality. These tracks are bright, fresh, and full of promise, and By Light We Loom are a duo to fall in love with.
