You’ve probably heard Smother by now, and read about some of the songs that inspired it. “Loop The Loop”‘s one of the best songs on Smother, and, it turns out, one of the band’s favorite songs on the album too. In an interview about the song for NPR, Thorpe said this about “Loop The Loop”:
To me it’s a very human song. It’s sort of a song about human acceptance. It’s the tone of it and the consciousness of it that I’m most proud of. To me it’s got a humbleness and an acceptance of difficult things and yet it draws a positivity from those things. To me it sounds like positive music.
