Bio

Smooth and tangy to the taste, Butter are a 6 piece from Perth, a concoction of genres churned with the love of soul, jazz and 90's hip-hop. With a range of influence from King Krule, MF DOOM & BADBADNOTGOOD, the group have been cutting their teeth on the Perth gig circuit since mid-2018; a relatively short time to have made such a strong impression. The Butter is spreading and punters are flocking to catch their electric live show, a dark blend of “boom-bap drums, synths, subtle guitar work, and slinky bass… bolstered by classically jazzy trumpet melodies and vocalist Lachy’s unique and distinct half-sung/half-rapped delivery”.*

Butter's debut single 'Hocus Pocus' will be out in February 2019, available on all streaming platforms.

Recklessly swaying in my office chair to this one. Imagine what I'd do to this live. Actually, best not.

Have become truly obsessed with this track over the last few weeks. The drama in those horns and the vocals (every time) are so enjoyable. It's extravagant, a little experimental and just a damn good track.
