Since the inception of Anxious in 2016, the band has always acted with purpose. This may seem like a simple premise, but for five kids still in high school at the time, it’s quite an accomplishment. Early songs were packaged in limited run demo tapes with accompanying zines and hand-dyed t-shirts. Weekends were filled with regional runs of shows outside of their Fairfield, Connecticut home base. With this amount of effort it’s no wonder that within a few years of graduation, Anxious has built a solid foundation for their debut album to flourish upon.

On “Little Green House”, Anxious explores what it feels like to enter adulthood in unflinching detail. The Connecticut band unpacks struggles, joys, and hard-earned realizations in a way that makes them feel wise beyond their years. Anthemic songs like lead single “In April” and guaranteed sing-along “Growing Up Song” thread the often difficult melodic-hardcore needle in a way that feels both nostalgic for the emo renaissance of yesteryear and precisely built for the current moment of genre defiant pioneering.

Anxious’ ability to seamlessly blend raw, emotional punk, with soaring melodies and anthemic choruses has been drawing praise from the likes of Stereogum, The FADER, Revolver Magazine, BrooklynVegan, Uproxx, Paste, and more. “…remarkably accomplished and versatile for such a young band. The songwriting is tight and dynamic, the production clean yet visceral.” – Stereogum (Album of The Week)

“…some of the most gorgeous, immediate emo in recent memory…” – BrooklynVegan

Anxious has an easy confidence in their melodic, even poppy sound, while also not being afraid to lean into the influences of the hardcore scene that birthed them…” – The Alternative
