ANXIOUS – ” Sunsign “

Posted: October 7, 2022 in MUSIC

Connecticut’s Anxious don’t miss a beat on “Sunsign,” their first new material since the January release of their acclaimed full-length debut “Little Green House”. That’s not to say they’re stuck in one place: The band’s new track dials back their emo-tinged post-hardcore intensity while remaining a carthartic, energizing anthem. Recorded and produced by Mike Sapone (Taking Back Sunday, The Front Bottoms, Oso Oso), the track puts an intimate, acoustic guitar-driven foot forward, exhibiting a new high-water mark of dynamism for the band. Vocalist Grady Allen wrestles with feelings of emotional isolation and overwhelm, wondering in the song’s sticky-sweet choruses, “Am I work when I want help? / Am I thinking ‘bout myself?” These questions have no easy answers, as Anxious know well, but ultimately, the conversation itself matters most: “I call you again and you answer the same.” 

On “Sunsign” Anxious–made up of vocalist Grady Allen, guitarist/vocalist Dante Melucci, bassist Sam Allen, and drummer Jonny Camner–takes yet another step forward. The urgency that carried “Little Green House” is still there, but it’s presented in new, engaging ways. The song has a sprawl that feels like a marked evolution of the band’s sound while retaining all the earnest emotion that fans have come to love.

“Sunsign” by Anxious, available digitally now on Run For Cover Records.
