Buttered Sooth The Soul With Their Debut Album, ‘Homesick’
Gold Coast local lords, Buttered, have revealed their soul-stirring debut album, Homesick. This masterfully crafted record effortlessly navigates through various themes and musical genres, showcasing the duo’s exceptional versatility.
Homesick is a captivating blend of Soul, Pop, Acoustic Folk, and RnB, finding its unique space in the rich tapestry of contemporary music. Drawing inspiration from an eclectic array of iconic artists, the album captures the essence of Buttered’s diverse musical influences.
“We produced Homesick while being inspired by the likes of Parcels to D’angelo, Marvin Gaye and Post Malone, most [of the record] being created in one of our bedrooms or Scott’s mum’s house.” – BUTTERED.
Embarking on a creative journey, inseparable companions Scott and Jackson delve fearlessly into the dynamic landscape of romantic relationships in the creation of their latest record. The conceptual exploration unfolds intricately, with tracks such as ‘Blue Jeans’ skillfully embodying the essence of 90’s RnB ballads—smooth as velvet and irresistibly seductive. On the flip side, the album’s recent single, ‘Jealous’, delves into the weightier facets of romance, shedding light on the tumultuous journey of confronting personal demons and pitfalls within relationships. Spanning the spectrum of highs and lows, the result is a masterfully crafted album that seamlessly weaves harmonies into a poignant narrative, offering a comprehensive and soul-stirring exploration of love in all its dimensions.
“We wanted to string together lots of different elements of love and relationship. Mostly romantic or lustful (‘Blue Jeans’, ‘Honey Lips’, ‘Perfect’) but have the other, difficult parts of relating (‘Jealous’, ‘Experience’). Homesick is our representation of all things in a relationship and how you can have nostalgia with many different parts of relating with someone even when it’s kind of shit.” – BUTTERED.
To celebrate the release of the long-awaited debut album, the duo will embark upon an intimate album launch tour, playing a handful of dates across QLD and NSW.
“We’ve been perfecting our live set over the last twelve months, incorporating songs from the album and getting an upbeat and energetic experience for the crew that come out and see us. We’ve been good friends with Mirror Mirror for a long time, so we’re thrilled to have them joining us on our debut album tour! We look forward to meeting you all then.
“From weeks recording in a shed to a beautiful home in Toowoomba or mostly in a spare room at each other’s houses we slowly but surely pieced the album together… It was a learn as you go process, but we are so stoked with having had so much time to sit on ideas and take the music wherever it needed to go without rushing anything. Shout out to our mixing engineer Jared Adlam who had to deal with our novice sessions that were a mess… To sum it up, we can’t wait to do it again!” – BUTTERED.
With Homesick, this soul-pop duo establishes itself as one of the country’s most dynamic and compelling acts, leaving an indelible mark on the musical landscape. It’s available now everywhere.
