NYC Indie rockers Loose Buttons unveil video for "Thrill" and play CMJ

Loose Buttons are a young NYC based indie rock quartet bringing some sophistication (in the form of danceable grooves and refined guitars lines and melodies) to the gritty sound of the current local rock scene. Their latest track, released just a few weeks ago, is called "Thrill" (brand new video streaming below), and it's a radio-ready example of the band's talent. The guitars shift back and forth between garage-rock grit and reverb-heavy echoes, while Eric Nizgretzky's vocals carry on in an ever-so-slightly distorted way that works well with the head-bobbing rhythms of the drums and bass. The single is the group's first release since last year's second EP, "Damage Gallery," but there has been no word on whether another record is in the works. Loose Buttons will be performing on October 15 - 17, at Alphabet Lounge, Fontana's, and Rock Shop respectively, as a part of the 2015 CMJ Music Marathon. Check them out! - Patrick Wolff
