Loosen Up is the second single released by London-based duo Gillbanks, taken from their forthcoming debut album Lived-in, which is due out later this month. Where their debut release Anxious? was rough and raucous, on Loosen Up they demonstrate a more melodic side, with chiming guitars sidling up alongside occasional bursts of guitar melody and a wistful lyric, occasionally unusual harmonies lending it a slightly distant and reticent air.

I could not stay forever

but we should talk it through

if I could

then I would

try to loosen up
