Bread & Butter play fun, energetic rock music that is true to their name: simple, timeless and tasty. Since their first basement session together in 2014, the members of Bread & Butter have been inseparable. At the time, the four musicians were playing in various other Seattle bands, but within weeks of writing together it was clear that a brotherhood had formed and their other projects were dropped.
Since then, the band has split their time between sweaty clubs and outdoor festival stages. They’ve opened for Ty Segall at their hometown’s historic Neptune Theater, shared Neumos' stage with Shannon & the Clams, and have performed live in the legendary KEXP studio.
As the world takes a turn for the bitter and dystopian, the debut album from this genuinely fun-loving foursome couldn’t have come at a better time. Bread & Butter is unapologetic: a party record that would make Cheap Trick proud. The hooks are plentiful, the charm is immediate, and if lead singer Shane Herrell’s wrap-around smile is anything to go by, then the warm fuzz of his band’s cranked-up amps and sunny grooves must be a powerful antidote to these strange times.
