While most bands in college are laying out the groundwork for their first local gig, Sins of the Loose Buttons has already released an album, Silent Snow, and completed an East Coast tour, popping up in cities like Boston, Toronto and, of course, the 305.
If the name of their band doesn’t already grab your attention (it has so many origins even they can’t pin down where it came from), then the sounds and style of Eric Nizgretsky (vocals), Zack Kantor (guitar), Manny Silverstein (bass) and Kai Colucci (drums) will. Since 2007, the band has been hard at work producing their own music and packing venues with their high-energy performances and complex rhythm. Not even distance can act as sound barrier- Eric, Manny and Kai are all sophomores here at the U while Zach is a sophomore at Wesleyan University- as the band is currently working on their next ep.
Distraction was lucky enough to eavesdrop on Sins of the Loose Buttons at practice, bringing you the 411 on what makes this quartet tick, what’s next on their agenda and, most importantly, who in heaven’s name is “Lucy.”
