Anxious release new single ‘Sunsign’ ahead of full US tour w/ Oso Oso

Anxious release new single ‘Sunsign’ ahead of full US tour w/ Oso Oso
Salad Days

In January of this year Anxious released their debut full-length, ‘Little Green House’, and now the Connecticut-based up and comers are already back with a new single: ‘Sunsign’ via RFC.

‘Little Green House’ drew praise from fans and critics alike for its seamless combination of hardcore grit, classic emo dynamism, and ’90s alternative hooks, and now with ‘Sunsign’ Anxious have taken yet another leap forward. Recorded/produced by Mike Sapone (Taking Back Sunday, The Front Bottoms, Oso Oso), ‘Sunsign’ is one of the catchiest songs the band have ever written. From its very first moments the warm harmonies and buoyant melodies jump out at the listener, leaning into the poppiest elements of Anxious‘ sound without sacrificing an ounce of heart or energy. With Sapone‘s production, Anxious are given a layered warmth that suits the band’s growing interests, at times sounding like if The Get Up Kids and Modern Baseball both had studied the Revelation Records catalog. “I don’t think Anxious is trying to constrict itself to any binary and is, instead, trying to lead with what feels organic and what we want to create rather than trying to chase something,” says vocalist Grady Allen. ‘Sunsign’ has a sprawl that feels like a marked evolution in Anxious‘ sound while retaining all the earnest emotion that fans have come to love. “We’ve gotten a lot of questions around ‘Little Green House’ if there were conscious efforts to do certain things, and the answer is no, there was no conscious effort ever to create a sound, replicate a sound, any of that” explains Allen, “It was just us trying to create something that we felt was wholeheartedly something we wanted to do. And I think that energy was consistent with us putting these songs together.” Since the release of ‘Little Green House’ Anxious have been on the road non-stop, completing five full U.S. tours in eight months. The band are showing no signs of slowing down, teaming Oso Oso for another lengthy run of shows planned for the Fall. See full itinerary below.
