Strange Loops – “Comforts of an Apocalypse”


“Comforts of an Apocalypse” is a catchy track from NYC rockers Strange Loops, touting melodic synths and a stirring vocal lead. Sef Kapur’s vocals impress in alternating between the rousing verses and melodic “I could give you up,” chorus, the latter complemented nicely by Ellen Hardcastle’s melodic synth/key additions. Around the three-minute mark, the track shows an effective bridge and ensuing instrumental section, emphasizing Tyler Postiglione’s guitar work alongside the escalating rhythm section of bassist Santiago Hervella and drummer Patrick Hagan. “Comforts of an Apocalypse” is an enjoyable ride throughout.

“Comforts of An Apocalypse” comes from the band’s full-length debut, Adult Fantasy Novel. The band was inspired by classic-rock concept albums from the ’70s, calling Adult Fantasy Novel a “tour through the mega-metropolis-bound, anxiety-ridden-millennial mind.” Stream the album below:
