Loji – Language

By now, we are familiar with Toronto-based duo Loji’s characteristic musical stylings (and scrawlings about music – one of them is a Silent Shout contributor). Their house-flavored jams usually have a strong sense of darkness to them, yet retain pop music’s best sensibilities. Their excellent new single “Language” is full of eerie lyrics (“please don’t invite those creatures down my spine they give me chills”) that contrast with the track’s effortlessly dancey vibe. The production feels almost surgically sharp, yet the choruses feature splashes of flashy synths for good measure. The song is as creepy as it is euphoric (and clever: “you’re already going nowhere and I think I know a faster way” is definitely one of the best lines we’ve heard in a while).

“Language” is available, PWYW, from Loji’s Bandcamp. For those of you who are in Toronto, be sure to catch them live at Handlebar with a bevy of Silent Shout faves at Handlebar on Saturday May 13.
