Following the release of their first two EPs, native New York quartet Loose Buttons have released their new single, ‘Thrill’, due for release on 28th August.
Coming of age in New York City’s artistic revival of the early-2000s – a movement that gave America its second wave of indie rock on the backs of The Strokes, Interpol and LCD Soundsystem – the boys of Loose Buttons began their immersion into the city’s newly galvanized musical culture. Their early adolescent years saw the four lads begin playing their respective instruments around the Five Boroughs in front of whoever would dare listen to a 12 year old with an electric guitar.
Years later, the band comprised of Eric Nizgretsky, guitarist Zack Kantor, bassist Manny Silverstein and drummer Adam Holtzberg joined forces, clearly all struck by the energy buzzing around their home city and channelling that mutual inspiration into their own fun-loving brand of indie rock.
Still each in their early 20s, the four-piece are also a powerful live entity, having played prolifically around New York City and Miami, where three members of the band attended the Frost School of Music, where the city’s warmer, more electronic influences helped guide their sound. Still true to their indie rock ‘n’ roll roots, Loose Buttons released their debut EP ‘AM Arcade’ in 2013, leading to them to shows at New York City’s coveted Brooklyn Bowl, and supporting Grizzly Bear and My Morning Jacket in Times Square.
