After self-producing, pressing and releasing their debut beat tape ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter’ to a sold-out Mojo’s crowd, the band is standing tall, wrapping up an intense run of shows throughout 2018 and obsessively fine-tuning their set.
Smooth and tangy to the taste. Butter is a six-piece group from Perth, a concoction of genres churned with the love of soul, jazz and 90s hip-hop. With a range of influence from King Krule, MF Doom and 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.
