Explosive and Strong like duct tape!
Drink Up Buttercup's record release show set at Piano's was strong, flexible and explosive. The affect is long lasting much like pink duct tape used last night to coordinate their makeshift set up. Duct tape on the run.
Drink Up Buttercup has muscle and flexed it with experimentation creating an urgency of sound. The guitars were amped up, the bass notes held down to contort and extend beyond recognition, and James Harvey proved that his thoracic diaphragm can scream, do opera and harmonize simultaneously.
The rain didn't put a damper on the enthusiastic crowd who waited till 12:00 for the lively set.
How they will sustain this kind of energy for all eleven dates at SXSW will be a testiment to a band that could. I'm sure they will proove their might. I wish them well!
The official release date for Born And Thrown On A Hook on Yep Rock Records is March 23rd but you can pre-order here and get two bonus tracks.
