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.

On top of my list to see you guys play Bigsound this week. You guys have sneakily become one of my favourite bands over the last couple of releases. The groove in this is irresistible. You're all so clever. You make magic happen.

Feel like my brain has turned into a gum like consistency while trying to figure out how Butter do this so well. Smart players who always keep it interesting.
