The daughter of world-renown jazz guitarist Chuck Loeb and Spanish singer-songwriter/actress Carmen Cuesta, it was probably inevitable that Cuesta Loeb would follow in their footsteps. After studying classical flute and bassoon, she focussed more on leftfield genres, as you can hear on the sublime immerse inverse.
If you remember London’s Curve with affection, then you will find a lot to like on immerse inverse. It shares that similar shimmering ‘wall of guitars’ that Toni Halliday and Dean Garcia employed so artfully. But like Curve, the rhythm and sense of movement of the track feels designed to make the listener move their feet, not stare at them. Shoegaze-inspired but with a sly nod to the indie dancefloor, immerse inverse is a sugar-coated sledgehammer of a song.
Loeb had this to say about the track: “It’s been hard to remain optimistic recently, but still, every once in a while I feel a shift in perspective, in my reality, that feels open, carefree, and childlike. I experience a world with magic, endless possibilities and overwhelming gratitude for glimpses at a time. Living inside of that realm is incredibly hard in a world where so many things feel so wrong. This song lives in that place of everything good.”
