“Down but Not Out” is the new single by artist Bones in Butter. Their pop rock sound is extremely catchy, from guitar solos to the keyboard chords to the vocals. They are a band from Belgrade, Serbia. The bass part drives forward the verse sections of the song.
Bones in Butter are made up of five members. Milutin Krašević is on vocals, synths, music and lyrics. Luna Škopelja is on vocals and FX. Todor Živković is on guitars. Srđan Popov is on Bass, mix and master. Tom Fedja Franklin is on Drums.
Their sound on this song seems to have an 80s alternative influence, which they confirm in their press release. However, they don’t want to be labeled a “retro” band. “There are lots of influential bands and artists, mostly from the 80s and 70s, such as Lou Reed, the Stranglers, Wire, Magazine, the Electric Light Orchestra, Wall of Voodoo, Tuxedomoon, Joy Division, Howe Gelb. However, we do not consider ourselves “retro” or a “revival band” but try to create a unique and contemporary sound,” they said.
The whole band jams well on this song during the instrumental passages, and will have listeners hooked to their sound. They say this about the meaning of the song. “The song is a tale about ordinary people living, suffering and surviving in a hostile environment dominated by a malevolent, corrupt and immoral elite,” they said. They also added, “This uplifting and positive song represents a contrast to some of our previous releases that are dominated by rather gloomy and bleak themes. As for the style, I guess certain influences from the Electric Light Orchestra can be clearly heard.”
