Indie band Loupe has had a busy summer with lots of shows. The season started at Noorderslag 2022 and ended with an invitation to Eurosonic 2023. Loupe thrives on stage with a strong live set full of quirky guitar riffs and poppy vocal lines in which they sing about their way through life. With imagery in colours and movements, she draws you into her world of experience.But the band also comes into its own in the studio. The two EPs, ‘Older’ and ‘Spring ’19’, released by the band flooded the listener with smooth grooves interspersed with stripped-down fragile moments. The influences of the likes of Julia Jacklin, Kruangbin and The Breeders, in all their diversity, seem to come together in Loupe’s music in a measured and tasteful way.
