L00PING DROP AGGRESSIVE TRACK “I DON’T GO OUTSIDE” & ANNOUNCE NEW EP “ZERO-POINT ENERGY” OUT NOVEMBER 19TH
L00PING DROP AGGRESSIVE TRACK “I DON’T GO OUTSIDE” & ANNOUNCE NEW EP “ZERO-POINT ENERGY” OUT NOVEMBER 19TH London, Ontario’s L00ping release their new single “I Don’t Go Outside”. Fueled by the yearning for true freedom in being one’s true self, the track is the second single off of the band’s upcoming EP “Zero-Point Energy” due out November 19th, 2021. Listen to the single HERE.The core concept of the new single is being negatively impacted by unintentional isolation with a hint of being in denial about it,” states Evan Martin (vocals). “I think of it as a kind of Ouroboros. Always in the process of keeping yourself to yourself and the inevitability of having to interact with the outside world. Being a near-complete shut-in can feel very very comforting but also puts strain on interpersonal relationships not to mention jobs. It’s all pathological. There is no rhyme or reason it just is.”Named after a term in quantum mechanics, the Zero-Point Energy EP was recorded by Ian Gomes at Union Sound. “Zero-Point Energy” is the lowest possible energy that a quantum mechanical system can have. It’s like turning off a lightbulb but you can still see a tinge of light in the filament or if you turn your headphones all the way down you can hear a very small amount of audio.
That would lead you to believe there it’s not truly off and that you can turn the volume/light down to complete silence/darkness, but there is no other way to do so. There is no complete off switch for these systems and that, theoretically, there is this ambient ground level of energy surrounding everything almost like the bedrock of seemingly everything. I’m by no means an expert on this topic and if anything, I’m a casual enthusiast on all things quantum mechanics related. However, I took that idea of an energy bedrock and spun it as a way to look at someone at their “lowest” and that there is still something there keeping them all together and functioning,” explains Martin. On September 3rd, L00ping released the first single from the EP, “Cold Showers”. Watch the video HERE.
L00ping, the industrial noisegazer rock band is reminiscent of a 1980s era Sonic Youth and early Nirvana messing around with harsh noise samples. They are broken, loud and abrasive. Members include Evan Martin on vocals and guitar and Laurie McColeman on bass.
