West Coast Singer/Songwriter, Will Loomis, has cut through delusion and artistically embraces his cape-flapping and ambitious self throughout his latest LP release, ‘Clean’.
Kicking off with the first track, “Home”, Will Loomis travels through a realm of inner seduction and brings his current state of mind forward within the sensual interlacing of forthright lyricism and a funky blend of instrumentals that compliment the songs intention. “Take Heart” is the second track that slows it down and begins with a smooth and timeless walk into simple lyrical treasures that showcase Will’s indomitable spirit as he discovers and fine-tunes his place within the ever-changing world of music. The third track, “Father”, takes listeners on a nostalgic ride as Will lyrically documents his idiosyncratic journey and speaks of his inclination toward wanderlust as impassioned guitar-work and instrumentals lift the spirits of those who are within a perplexing chapter of their life. “Panic and Fear” is the fourth track that kicks off with an all-american blast that mimics a track that an individual would crank up as they hit the road with very little packed, yet the cultivation of inner courage leads them toward spreading their wings and breaking free from the grips of fear. The fifth track, “Run Virgin Run”, is a moody entity of its own that brings traces of 1970’s Blues and Rock back into the light as Will lyrically influences the ignition of another individuals edgy presence. “US of RX” is the sixth track that lyrically tackles the current social climates universal battle in lieu of the multimillion-dollar pharmaceutical snare that is altering the brain chemistry of thousands of individuals around the globe.
The seventh track, “Clean”, serves as a testament of resilience in the face of addiction as Will lyrically and cunningly walks through the highs and lows that he has encountered that have led him to develop a new lease on life. “Christian American Popstar Sexual Virgin Whore” is the eighth track that mimics Garbage back in their ‘Version 2.0’ days as dull and purposefully lifeless instrumentals lead into blasts of spunk that detail the inner world of a manic mind that is going through troubling times. The ninth track, “The Holy Don’t Know Me”, begins with Will’s interpretation of life after death and leads into remaining mindful of our days and moments while we are here and have the gift to experience human life. “The Waitress In The Sky” is the tenth track that begins with back-to-the-basics, groovy funk that surges into a childlike pool of wonder in musical form that is abounding with lyrical gems of insight and thoughts that have come about in hindsight. Closing out with “You Do Voodoo”, Will ends with a sparked fire within as he speaks of an explosion of pheromones and oxytocin that have kept him stuck in the mud within a relationship that has run its course.
This is only the beginning of Will Loomis’ ride and there are plenty of chapters to look forward to in the future. If you’re a fan of a mixture of fellow musicians/bands such as Jet, Tom Petty, The Eagles and Jack White, then check out what Will Loomis has to offer on Soundcloud.
