We first heard the shimmering shoegaze pop of Oakland-based multi-instrumentalist Hannah van Loon when Chaz Bear of Toro Y Moi guest-curated our weekly Stack. Following four years in San Francisco band Trails and Ways, and her first solo EP in 2016, Loon has arrived at her striking debut full-length, Sundays. Here, she sings of existential longing and new beginnings in her hometown over a "veil of grinding guitar noise and tranquil, Bilinda Butcher-esque melodies," says The Fader. The record was produced by Bear and sees release on his label Company Records, home to Astronauts, etc. and Madeline Kenney.Coverage on music sites Official website
