": Loonaloop at The Winchester Bournemouth U.K " Going Loopy""

Australian 6 piece “Loonaloop” provided a night of Beat- filled entertainment with a set including hints of Drum n Bass, Dub, trance, electro and even a touch of folk.
A few sound check issues delayed their start but it was definitely well worth the wait- their infectious energy and enthusiasm shone through from the first beat of the drums.
A plethora of instruments shared the stage space, violin, drums ,percussion, synths and not one but 2 didgeridoo’s not something seen too often in the Triangle.
A Drum n Bass punch with some haunting strings kicked off their set along with some smooth vocals from Shiney Lefai who was definitely a stage live wire.
A Faithless-esque dance track followed on making the room want to reach for the lasers while Shiney controlled the keys in the style of sister bliss
The eclectic mix of music continued with a track called Only Human, a reggae tinted tune from their 2009 album “Skipping Stones” their third album since forming in 2003.
The bands ability to switch between genres meant that no two songs sounded the same and a ever increasing large crowd lapped it up/
The bands love of music and their individual as well as collective talents were easy to see and felt through the room. With their U.K section of their European Tour ending soon they are definitely an act worth chasing.
