Bones in Butter – This Is Not What You Promised Us [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Retro-futuristic harmony

Your music has an experimental tone. Should music as a form of art always challenge the listener?

If we focus on music as a form of art, then definitely yes. Music must keep the listener alert, music must constantly challenge and inspire the audience and enrich their lives.

What is the story behind your name?

I must disappoint you but there is no deeper meaning behind the name “Bones in Butter”. One evening, I was watching an episode of the crime/comedy TV series “Bones” when the name suddenly popped into my head and I said to myself: “Now this has a nice ring to it” 🙂

Artists and people who have influenced and inspired you?

My parents and my older sister definitely had the most influence on me. As for artists and bands that shaped me as a musician, the most important were Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground, Jeff Lynne, Franco Battiato, Wall of Voodoo, the Stranglers, Tuxedomoon, Magazine…

Is Spotify the music industry’s new Gatekeepers?

I guess it is. Spotify and the Algorithm. Now we can argue about whether this is good or bad, but it is simply a fact. In the future, the Algorithm decides which song will be distributed to a wider audience. For artists in general and musicians in particular – talent, creativity and inovation become less important. Instead, they are forced to focus on marketing, socials and numbers.

Which book should we read while listening to your music?

The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov, a timeless phantasmagoric novel with a strong social commentary

What would you say is your biggest vice?

Haha, that would definitely be my smoking habits.

Thank you!
