America’s answer to British India and The Arctic Monkey’s, Loose Buttons, have recently dropped their new EP “Sundays”, brimming with all the attitude and style of the young bands home city – New York. Although Loose Buttons seem like they are newcomers to the scene, they have already headlined gigs at the Brooklyn Bowl, played the 2013 CMJ Music Marathon and played in Time Square, all since their debut LP dropped, and after listening to “Sundays” it is easy to see why. Featuring “Between Brick Walls”, a beautifully painful breakup song, this carefully engineered EP is the clear representation of why such a young band has already gone so far in the New York indie rock scene.
Band frontman Eric Nizgretsky explains; “Between Brick Walls” was penned after a much-needed epiphany that my ex and I were fundamentally wrong for each other. Being the train-wreck romantic that I am, I made the mistake of keeping the relationship alive for much longer than I should have. Truthfully, I did it because I was insecure about being alone. The song is about going through the motions to avoid that dreaded loneliness.”
With vocals that are reminiscent of The Last Shadow Puppets and a scuzzed out guitar riff that acts as a perfect soundtrack for walking New York City streets, “Between Brick Walls” comes from their forthcoming EP, “Sundays”.
