Jeremy Loops New Album “Critical As Water” + Tour – Across The Ocean

Jeremy Loops New Album “Critical As Water” + Tour

‘Critical As Water’, the new album from Jeremy Loops is out now.

The follow up to his critically acclaimed debut ‘Trading Change’- which won MTV Africa’s Alternative Album of the Year, and iTunes SA’s Album of the Year – is produced by Will Hicks (Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’, Lilly Allen, Bastille), with additional production contributions by Jake Gosling (James Bay, The Libertines, Shawn Mendes).

Loops immediately supports the new album release by heading out on the road for three months in Europe, North America and Australasia, playing 27 shows across 10 countries, selling a total 30,000 tickets.

The theme of water runs deep through the album. Where ‘Waves’ is breezy and light, ‘Underwater Blues’ speaks to the weightlessness of insomnia in a hyper-connected always-on world, rewarded only by the release of sleep – a sort of deep submergence.

More urgent still is the real water crisis in Cape Town, South Africa, Jeremy’s home town. On course to be the first major city in the world to run out of water, taps to homes will be turned off on 22 April 2018, in an environmental crisis that sees the devastating effects of political mismanagement, unsustainable consumption, and rapidly changing climates coming to a heed. And so when these themes come up on songs like ‘Flash Floods’ and a hauntingly beautiful ballad called ‘Vultures’, a more terrifying or apt backdrop to the album’s release cannot be conceived.
