“I’ll try not to gush too much… it’s right up my alley; dreamy melodic pop with a twist”
(Dean Hanson, Ball Park Music, 2018).
‘Bury Me’ is the new single by Butternut Sweetheart, produced by Sam Cromack (Ball Park Music). ‘Bury Me‘ is a melancholic yet head bobbing journey. The launch show for for this latest single was at Cobra Club at the Bank Hotel in Newtown. You can check out my blog for the first single launch of ‘Paper Cut’ here.
Butternut Sweetheart is the musical project of Sydney based multi-instrumentalist, producer and my mate, Luke Moseley. Although officially formed in late 2018, Butternut Sweetheart has been percolating below the surface for years. Created purely as an avenue for artist expression, Luke pushes musical boundaries by creating a sense that the songs have evolved from dark, smouldering embers of a dying fire. Making the listener ask the question ‘Is that a guitar? Is that a keyboard? Is that human?’
Inspired by difficult to define artists such as Unknown Mortal Orchestra, tune-yards, and Melodies Echo Chamber, Butternut Sweetheart songs are a warping mélange of electronic and organic production and the centrepiece of this project. Organic source material is manipulated to make it sound electronic (eg. making a piano sound like a synthesiser). Similarly, electronic sounds are made to seem organic (using synths to sound like they have a voice).
Up until now Luke forged his path as tour manager and guitar tech for Australian icons such as Rufus Du Sol, Sarah Blasko, The Paper Kites and Matt Corby. Butternut Sweetheart are supporting Ball Park Music on tour in May & June this year!
