Loma is a composite band, a collaboration between the original duo of Cross Record (Emily Cross and Dan Duszynski) and Shearwater's Jonathan Meiburg, merging their remarkably parallel sensibilities into a single combo. Their overall sound is more or less a combination of its parts: it is built on expansive soundscapes, dark ambient energy, a cavernous feel, and ethereal vocals. Their use of synthesizers was increased on their second album Don't Shy Away (2022). Otherwise, they have a soft spot for various woodwind and brass instruments as well as a string section to create a layered sound. The music is elegant and beautiful in the way it unfolds patiently, evoking a broad sense of space.
