FOLLow BONES IN BUTTER viA:


Forget your preconceived notions of pop music. Bones In Butter’s debut album, “Songs For A Sane Society,” throws a glitter bomb on them and dances through the fallout.

Don’t let the “pop” label fool you. The album is a masterclass in irony. Fusing lighthearted melodies and upbeat rhythms with lyrics that allude to a darker side. It’s a genre-bending collection, a dance floor built on thought-provoking themes like alienation, virtual dystopias, and the struggle for a better world. Tracks like “So Alone” and “Littlewing” lure you in with their sun-kissed pop vibes. But then “They Live!” hits you like a punch in the gut with its urgent guitars and biting social commentary.

It’s this constant push-pull that makes “Songs For A Sane Society” so captivating. One minute, you’re swaying to a dreamy “Dystopian Love Song.” The next you’re lost in the angst of “This Is Not What You Promised Us.” The same goes for “Never Without You” and “Sad Girl” – moments of tenderness punctured by a subtle, unsettling edge. The album feels like a conversation with a close friend, sharing both laughter and tears, never shying away from the complexities of life.

The production of “Songs For A Sane Society” is simply masterful. Each layer is painstakingly composed. It combines synths, guitars, and throbbing rhythms to create an ambience that is both well-known and novel. It’s similar to entering a surreal world where whispered secrets and neon lights coexist.

But the album’s conceptual profundity is what really strikes a chord, even beyond its technical mastery. Bones in Butter isn’t afraid to tackle the big questions, the anxieties and uncertainties that define our times. They do it with irony, humor, and a fierce determination to find beauty and hope even in the darkest corners.

“Songs For A Sane Society” might be a paradox – a celebration of hope amidst a world teetering on the edge. But that’s what makes it so brilliant. Bones In Butter invites us to dance, sing, and fight for a better tomorrow, even if it feels like a lost cause.
