Bones in Butter have been active since 2019, and their latest single “A Dystopian Love Song” presents the band in their final lineup, including Milutin Krasevic (vocals, synths, samples, music & lyrics), Luna Skopelja (vocals, synths), Todor Zivkovic (guitars, FX), Deja Skopelja from the band U škripcu (bass), and Tom Fedja Franklin from the band Fish in Oil (drums).
Apart from songwriter Milutin Krasevic, who used to work in the field of linguistics, the other band members are highly accomplished musicians with many years of touring and experience. While being influenced primarily by artists from the ‘80s and ‘70s (such as Lou Reed, the Stranglers, Wire, Magazine, the Electric Light Orchestra, Wall of Voodoo, Tuxedomoon, Joy Division, and Howe Gelb), Bones in Butter don’t consider themselves to be a “retro” or “revival” band. Rather, they create a unique and contemporary sound that can’t be easily categorized into a single genre.
Unlike Bones in Butter’s previous releases, “A Dystopian Love Song” was mixed and mastered by Dejan Skopelja at his recording studio in Belgrade; and all band members were involved in the production process.
Always dealing with serious issues (and often in an ironic fashion), Bones in Butter’s latest single was inspired by songwriter Milutin Krasevic’s memory of a night in a Belgrade club many years ago, when he met his current wife. “There was this crazy and eerie atmosphere I clearly recall. This event I tried to embed in a story of two lovers spending the night before an impending catastrophic incident,” Milutin says about the inspiration behind the single.
“A Dystopian Love Song” is also accompanied by a music video, which you can watch on release day here:
“A Dystopian Love Song” begins with spectral voices and the chiming of bells, creating an eerie mood that is soon dispelled as the song’s easygoing vocal melodies and bright electric guitar chord progressions enter, bringing the song in a decidedly different and more cheerful direction. A dynamic bass line and laidback drumming then join in as well, underscoring the track’s poetic lyrical passages with upbeat rhythms, while joyous backing vocals nicely highlight the song’s vocal- and guitar melodies with a pleasantly ethereal quality.
Bones in Butter’s newest single is quite an enjoyable listen throughout, again showcasing the band’s impressive musical versatility as well as their brilliant songwriting and superb musicianship. I would highly recommend this track to fans of upbeat alternative/indie rock and dream pop alike.
