Loquat Prep New Album, Play The Deli’s SXSW Show

Loquat Prep New Album, Play The Deli’s SXSW Show

SF electro-dream pop favorites Loquat are staging a semi-comeback with new album We Could be Arsonists, out April 24th digitally and May 1st physically via Nacional Records. The new album comes after a tumultuous few years of highs and lows for the band, with a complete lineup change as well as a new baby for lead singer and guitarist Kylee Swenson Gordon and her bandmate husband Anthony Gordon.

After their last release, Secrets of the Sea, the band fell upon hard times, eventually leading to two members leaving the band. The new lineup of Loquat now features keyboardist Chris Cooper, guitarist Chip Cosby, and drummer Jon Langmead, as well as a fresh perspective to performing and songwriting. We Could Be Arsonists features many songs that reflect the life changes for Swenson Gordon including “Seeds,” about her pregnancy, and “Monsters,” a song dedicated to her one year old son, Braxton.

The band is ready to reveal the new Loquat, starting with five shows at SXSW including the Deli Magazine’s party on March 15th at The Gypsy Lounge. SXSW dates are below and check out http://loquatmusic.com for more info and new music.
