Featuring recent hits ‘I Ain’t Running’, ‘One Flew’, and their latest single ‘Time’ (check out the cruisy new video), the EP is out on all digital platforms via NZ label Meow. The Butlers are currently on fire as they tour around New Zealand to sold out crowds, with media constantly dishing out rave reviews, and multiple singles cracking the million stream mark.
“Guitar wielding Sumner sensations The Butlers have the world in their sights.” – Under The Radar
‘silky vocals contrast splashes of funky, alt rock goodness that
recall the likes of Ocean Alley and Lime Cordiale.’ – Beat Magazine
‘they’ve found their winning formula’ – Sniffers
Produced by Will McGillvray, the ‘Kaikoura Conceptions’ EP was recorded in sessions at The Sitting Room in Lyttleton and the producer’s studio, and was engineered by Ryan Fisherman. Latest single ‘Time’ was written by George Berry and Walt Robberds of The Butlers, with the accompanying video being directed by Hannah Braddick, and shot and edited by Jusy Davis.
The Butlers continue to ride a wave of success since forming a few years back, and have now established themselves as a well-recognised, critically acclaimed and crucial band to the Kiwi music scene with a loyal and fanatical fanbase. Their debut self-titled album cracked the top-20 in the NZ charts in 2019, which followed on from two acclaimed EP’s, Fredrieks Friends and Halfway House (both released in 2017), and they’ve since clocked well over four million streams on Spotify. In turn, they’ve absolutely cracked the touring and festival circuit – their New Zealand national tours keep completely selling out, they’ve toured Australia twice, scored national tour supports with The Teskey Brothers and Sticky Fingers, and have delivered unforgettable performances at prestigious festivals including Rhythm & Vines, Electric Avenue, Rhythm & Alps and Bay Dreams
