Loose Ties is a Greek alternative rock band based in Athens.
The group’s lineup is Despoina Thoma on vocals, Petros Printezis on guitar & backing vocals, Pantelis Varvakis on the keys, Dinos Papadopoulos on the bass, and George Tountasakis on the drum kit.
Their sound is a mix of alternative rock and funk but as they suggest, they like to experiment with many genres. In 2020 Loose Ties released their first single “Promethea” which met great success in the local scene and in 2021, their first full-length album titled “Retrospect“.
Now comes 2022 and despite the great contradictions musicians have faced in the past two years (Covid-19, music restrictions, venues closing), Loose Ties drop their new single All About You, reminding us that no matter the circumstances, great music is always due to happen by talented and hardworking people!
All About You is an alternative rock song with a really catchy chorus that has stuck to my head by the first time I pressed play. The song feels like it could have been written some decades ago and been an instant hit, but at the same time, the production and vocal line give off a 2022 vibe, a combination of modern and past influences is hard to achieve but when done right, the outcome will surely be great.
In conclusion, Loose Ties seems like a band that’s here to stay, I’m looking forward to their musical endeavors and I suggest you do the same!
