about

A four-piece of native New Yorkers, the members of Loose Buttons came of age during the city’s early 00’s indie rock renaissance, on the heels of local heroes like The Strokes, The Walkmen and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs rising to national prominence. After releasing their sophomore EP ‘Sundays’ in February 2017, Loose Buttons has been met with critical praise that would do justice by their Lower East Side predecessors. Billboard has described the band’s sound as “a blend of new wave and pop all their own” while Consequence of Sound dubbed them “irresistibly sincere.” VICE hailed the group as a “garage-rock-pop good time” and Nylon is “absolutely in love with Loose Buttons’ scuzzed-out indie sound.”

The group’s origins lie in a different New York, a time before CBGB’s was a John Varvatos store. Galvanized by such a musically rich era in their city, each band member picked up an instrument early on and started gigging anywhere they could well before their teenage years (albeit in different bands). Loose Buttons’ lead singer Eric Nizgretsky and lead guitarist Zachary Kantor started playing music together when they were 10 years old, bringing a literal lifetime of experience to their role as the group’s primary songwriting duo. Nizgretsky and bass player Manny Silverstein were randomly-assigned freshman year roommates, ecstatic to discover their mutual love of all things music. The pair met Loose Buttons drummer Adam Holtzberg while he was playing in another group on campus, and were so impressed by his style that they stole him on the spot. He joined full-time the next day, and the four-piece was finally whole.

Loose Buttons’ sound and chemistry developed through years of near-constant gigging in New York, regularly headlining rooms like Mercury Lounge, Knitting Factory and Shea Stadium as their following grew. In the spring of 2016, the band took a break from their hometown scene, relocated to rural Connecticut and recorded the four songs that comprise their ‘Sundays’ EP. The collection is a cathartic and candid look at the demise of a long-term relationship, with lyrics written by Nizgretsky as he went through the experience firsthand. Gaining recognition throughout the music world after the EP's release, Loose Buttons is currently working on their follow-up: a debut full length, on the way next year.

Track Name: Tales Of What I'm Used To
Gather 'round, gather 'round
I'm feeling all dramatic
(alright)
This town's got heartbreaks punched in walls
Rearrange, turn the page
This ain't the way I'm used to
If only I could find the time

All of those reasons get me down
And all of those Sunday mornings
Alone in a box beside my perfect view

Yesterday's black earl grey
Straight teeth and fine white leather
Long drives and songs from '99
Thrown away, grasp my chain
You occupy my daydreams
Who am I?

All of those reasons get me down
And all of those Sunday mornings
Alone in a box and singing dreadful tunes
(singing lullabies)
All of those midnight altercations
And all of those wish-I-would-have-done's
Remind me of why I'm crawling back to you

(singing lullabies)

You got me hooked on you

All of those reasons got me down
And all of those Sunday mornings
Alone in a box beside my perfect view
Track Name: Between Brick Walls
Darling it's not like you
To make up all these rules against me, you're not very fair
It's not impossible to say our drawn out drive's to blame
But this passenger's insane, you know I wish I left alone

So you know
She's only into music from twenty years ago
Wearing all the fashion trends no one seems to know
Sunday brunch between brick walls and cobble stone
A knack to silence laughter

Darling it's not like you
To make up all these rules against me, you're not very fair

Ebbs and flows
That wreck your head with constant dread
A kick below
Although you know shouldn't you still dial the phone
Praying that the outcome ends those nights alone
Another bad decision

Darling it's not like you
To make up all these rules against me, you're not very fair
Track Name: Am I The Only Reason?
I don't know what to say
It's 'cause nothing's really wrong with you
Well I just walk away
From cigarettes and bad perfume
You see, nothing's really wrong with you
Nothing's really...

Am I the only reason?

Consulting my reflection
She caught all their eyes including mine
You smell me on somebody else
My innocence was intertwined
Yet I'll try all of these words to change it
Yes, stumble on them any day
I don't know what to say
'Cause nothing's really wrong

Am I the only reason?
Track Name: Milk & Roses
Alone and blue, wanting you
I'm finding ways to rewind 'till I'm right
Perfect days gone to waste
I'm feeling out of place

We were friends, on the weekends
Without a plan we call for hotel rooms
So it goes, as in that book you know
Our worlds they will resume

Baby I can wait maybe once or twice, maybe once or twice
Find another way to make it feel alright, to make it feel alright

Gone away, all those Sundays
Time for you to find somebody new
To be your friend, to not pretend
To sit at home with you

Baby I can wait maybe once or twice, maybe once or twice
Find another way to make it feel alright, to make it feel alright

I hate the way I can't explain, can't resolve, can't move forward
I saw me there so unaware, my glassy eyes, I went home sober
The part of me that wants to see you standing there with milk & roses
Looking back at photographs that made my laugh, I fucked things over

Find another way to make it feel alright, to make it feel alright
Crazy I would wait maybe once or twice, maybe once or twice
