Track of the Week: Down But Not Out // Bones In Butter
Regularly featured on Nexus Music Blog, we are no strangers to the unique sound of Bones In Butter, and we love it as well. Yet, we are not the only ones to succumb to their eclecticism and intoxicating melodies as the band receives critical acclaim from blogs like The Other Side Reviews, Indie Chronique, Rising Artists Blog, Sinusoidal Music, Punk Rocker, Euro Indie Music, Edgar Allan Poets, and various playlists. The latest addition to their well-received discography is the single ‘Down But Not Out’.
As with their previous material, ‘Down But Not Out’ has the same psychedelic tone as ‘A Dystopian Love Song’ and ‘Beyond The Sea’. In fact, a great similarity is heard between Bones In Butter and their influence Electric Light Orchestra. The same ambient vibes, ethereal flows and cinematic synth-driven soundscape; however, Bones In Butter bring a more unique and sensational sound finding the balance between old-school 80s synth-pop and modern-day alternative pop. The band explains that they do not consider themselves a revival band but attempt to create a unique, contemporary sound.
When it comes to their single ‘Down But Not Out’, there is a happier, more jovial vibe in the uplifting tune. The harmonic arrangement of synths, guitars, bass, drums and vocals is well-textured weaving a sonic tapestry with a sophisticated sound. Created in 2019, the lads have been creating music for just on three years, however, within that time they have already seen an evolution and honing of their unique musicality – and this evolution is clearly evident in the buoyant nature of ‘Down But Not Out’.
“This uplifting and positive song represents a contrast to some of our previous releases that are dominated by rather gloomy and bleak themes…the song is a tale about ordinary people living, suffering and surviving in a hostile environment dominated by a malevolent, corrupt and immoral elite.” – Milutin Krasevic (vocals, synths and lyrics) on ‘Down But Not Out’
