UK quintet Llovers pivots around anxiety caused by a halfhearted relationship in new single “Coming Loose.” With blazing vibrato, the track is a deceitfully sunny psychedelic piece where the ruminative lyrics echo the uneasiness that comes when you’re with someone who has one foot in and out of the door. It’s bittersweet as the swelling keys and fizzing percussions buoy you like Xanax, but at the same time the lyrics navigates the emotional heftiness of being with someone who is clearly half-assing it:
“‘Coming Loose’ deals with the anxieties that can come from being in a relationship, specifically one in which there’s little affection given from a paramour on the surface. It describes these feelings while also establishing which is used as a form of comfort within the narrative of the track” shared co-frontman Jack Brooks.
