VON LOOP

Von Loop are an energetic alternative rock group from Bangor, Northern Ireland. Musically they present a spectrum of emotion, from passionate calls for societal change, to ironic tongue in cheek satire – no stone should be left unturned in an attempt to provide inclusion and relatability through being genuinely vulnerable, passionate and fierce – commonalities we all share. The band has shared a long friendship and had made music originally for themselves as a bonding experience and a cathartic outlet – developing a catalogue they now wish to share, starting with their debut releases ‘Strap’ and ‘I’ve Got A Light’. In the current climate, where segregation, isolation and artificiality are the norm, Von Loop wishes to be the opposite of that mindset, promoting vibes of unity through raw energy, to confront the control of freedoms and peace. Their music has roots in the concept of liberty and the wish for all beings to be able to live the lives they value. They invite you to dance while they light the fire.
