Anxious recently followed their great 2022 debut album Little Green House with the new song "Sunsign," and now they've shared a second new single, "Where You Been." Like "Sunsign," "Where You Been" was produced by Long Island emo scene veteran Mike Sapone, and this one really finds Anxious embracing their love of The Beach Boys without toning down the power of their hardcore-informed roots. It's one of their prettiest, catchiest songs yet, and it really finds Anxious continuing to carve their own path. Vocalist Grady Allen says:
'Where You Been' focuses on my anxiety around not seeing my family enough due to the fact that I’m gone so often touring. I have this sinking feeling that I should be trying to do more when I’m home to make everyone feel appreciated--but it’s often easier said than done. I think ultimately my family is very understanding. The chorus is supposed to be the voice of my dad saying “don’t worry it’s fine”--so a lot of the song focuses more on MY perception that I’m not doing enough.
