Lomi Lomi in Different Sounds Zone
For many music critics Lomi Lomi’s album entitled “Heroizm Woli” – The Heroism of Will (Lado ABC) is one of the most interesting releases of 2015. Piotr Domagalski, Mateusz Szemraj, Krzysztof Cybulski and Artur Lipiński play music that evades categorisation. Check it out! Lomi’s music is like experimental dance music and contemporary early music mixed together. Lomi joins the unjoinable: psychedelia, melodic lightness and a touch of nerdiness (those cymbals!) It’s pretty chill, absurd and convincingly blasé. – Radek Soćko (tegoslucham.pl) It’s a bit like a radio drama broadcast by a niche radio station, or like a soundtrack to an old film, or like music played at a funeral, except the organist slightly overdosed on psychotropic substances – Łukasz Kamiński (Gazeta Wyborcza)
Lomi Lomi’s compositions evade categorisation. We can discuss possible ethnic traditions that inspired them, like klezmer music or we can imagine them to be soundtracks to another adaptation of Tales of 1001 Night. We can trace elements of psychedelic traditions from 1960s but also of the alternative music of Tricity from the 1990 and 2000s. This rowdy quartet does not seem to have any inhibitions - as soon as someone throws in a new idea , the rest happily follow this new path like mischievous children – Marceli Frączek (WAFP)
Heroizm Woli is one of my favourite Polish albums of this year. It offers surprising sound and form, it’s very songlike and abstract, full of fun, but not clichéd. – Piotr Lewandowski (Popup Music)
