Loose Buttons has felt a little stagnant these last 18 months… Haven’t we all? Their latest slice of guitar-pop, “First To Know, Last To Understand,” reckons with those feelings of stagnation – pondering what the best version of ourselves is, chasing after it, and coming to terms with falling down before the finish line. They do it via this unique approach to pop-punk; think twinkly guitars, unique chord progressions, and a peppy tempo.

We like this one – if you like it too, be sure to add it to your Spotify playlist. Keep an eye out for Loose Buttons’ upcoming sophomore LP, What’s On Outside, due out October 22.
