Sigh Twombly – “On The Loose”


A twangy success “about breaking free and feeling happy for others who have broken free,” “On The Loose” is the debut single from Sigh Twombly, the San Francisco-based project of Lukas Wagner. Hazy, frolicking guitars find lush accompaniment in shimmering acoustic guitars, which lead as Wagner’s laid-back vocals emerge. The title-touting hook enamors with its jangly engrossment, as does emotive electric guitar lead in the ensuing bride.

Produced by Worn-Tin and Runnner, “On The Loose” is a memorable success — and a standout debut — from Sigh Twombly. More recently, the project put out the second single, “Eyelids.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2023’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Jangly Rock.
