Butter The Children, a four-piece post-punk group of indie lifers from Brooklyn, is your new favorite band if you like your rock with both fangs and pop ambition. Fronted by Inna Mkrtycheva, the band includes Ray Weiss on guitar, J Boxer on bass, and Jordyn Blakely on drums.
Built from the seeds of countless cool-kid favorites (Sweet Bulbs, Night Manager, Fiasco, Le Rug) and the dust of deep-borough warehouse venues, Butter The Children successfully summons the ghosts of underground rock music history like few of their contemporaries.
On their debut EP True Crime, the band mixes the textured melancholy of The Smiths, C86 bands’ jangly guitars, the violently gauzy levitation of My Bloody Valentine and early Blondie’s sweetly-punk melodicism into a refreshingly loud, dangerous and pop-conscious dagger.
