Introducing... Buttered!

Introducing… Buttered!
Joshua Scicluna

A few things come to mind when I think of the word “buttered”. Yellow, silky, smooth, soft… All of which are synonymous with both the look and sound of our new favourite Gold Coast duo – Buttered.

Buttered is made up of Scott Dalton, Jackson James Smith, and a whole lot of blonde hair – their look being the the very personification of their band name. By name and by nature, Buttered have released a silky, buttery debut single – ‘Chasing Feelings’.



The track is a breath of fresh air, achieving a satisfying equilibrium between sunshine and emotion. The perfect jam to indulge in while you’re making your morning coffee & jam. New tunes like this are important to hear at the moment, as the bands debut single has the ability to give light and love in an otherwise dim global environment.

From the start, ‘Chasing Feelings’ is a swirl of passion dipped in elegant vocal production. Then a distinctive guitar line hits (or rather, caresses) a minute and a half in – like that perfect wave, with its gorgeous peak and consistency. From there the track builds you up, only to let you down gently in to a world of soul and bass. Picture yourself in suede shoes jiving atop red carpet to the beat. A fitting end to such a groovy tune.

This is only the beginning of the journey for Buttered, as their musical adventure is an adaptation of eight years of friendship. A clear indication of where their seamless synchronicity and blonde haired energy comes from.

If you like what you’ve heard, Scott Dalton has just released a single from his self titled solo project. A touching ballad to the trying times that we are currently living in. The multiple new releases from the Gold Coast based musician an indication of his productive intent during the current isolation period.
