Info

“I think I’m trying to find something better.” The plainspoken line is halfway between a revelation and a mission statement on Loose Buttons’ debut album; a snapshot of the four New Yorkers coming into their own on their own terms. With a sound that's been described as “an ultra-catchy version of downtown rock ‘n’ roll" by Stereogum, Loose Buttons’ Something Better is a testament to fending off the lingering pains of looking back and looming anxieties of looking forward to build something that's truly worth living for.
Joined by New York music collaborators like producer Gus Oberg (The Strokes, The Virgins) and guest vocalist Ava Trilling (Forth Wanderers), Something Better is above all else the ultimate appreciation of the New York scene that Loose Buttons was fostered in. As lead singer Eric Nizgretsky shouts at the end of the cathartic, raucous “Hell Is A Lonely Penthouse View”: “if I lose you, my crew, then nothing will get me high.”
