Sumner’s favourite four-piece group has found themselves releasing their second EP for the year. The first taste of the anticipated release shows the same summer salted sound that they do oh so well with a development in some potential jazz influence. Whatever the influences for the latest release is, it works, transferring the listener straight to those dusty Saturday morning full of despair and confusion.
‘Full Noise’ is the latest instalment of the Butlers’ ever growing repertoire. Off the back of their first EP, Halfway House, amassing close to 200,000 listens on Spotify alone, we were left wanting more from the small-town group, and as expected they did not disappoint. With a dreamy sax intro reminiscent of a smoky New York Jazz Club, it’s sets the premise for another beautiful Butlers ballad, that we’ve come to know and love. Telling the tale of those hungover days that all have had to deal with, the latest release maintains the ‘down to earth’ vibe that these boys ooze, while cementing themselves are far more than just a small-town band.
This latest release also provides a preview to the bands next EP, Frederick’s Friends, expected to be released by the end of the year. There’s also rumoured to be a sneaky second taste released in the coming week, so keep ears peeled and eyes locked on the bands site, https://www.facebook.com/thebutlersmusicnz/ .
The group caps off a stellar year with the sold out launch party of the release taking place days before Christmas at Lyttleton’s Wunderbar. Before welcoming in the new year as a part of New Zealand’s Rhythm & Vines Festival. We an absolute plate full of shows in and around the country for the next couple of months, hopefully the boys will find time to put together a full-length album for fans to enjoy.
