Partially made up of members of King Krule and Jerkcurb, Horsey drop their first official release in over a year, and “Bread and Butter” is a thrilling and unsettling blend of punk, jazz and lo-fi guitar.
The anticipated “Bread and Butter” is a hectic curiosity that slowly builds around choppy, discordant guitars and an unrelenting bassline. However, over the course of its five-minutes, the track grows increasingly chaotic as the feverish yowls of frontmen Theo McCabe and Jacob Read build in pitch.
It may not have an overall catchy melody, but there's a wild-eyed intensity that renders the track, and its accompanying visuals, strangely compelling. Self-directed by the band, the video is an absurdist stew of masked figures and psychedelic homages to the silver screen. It falls somewhere between avant-garde and ridiculous, and it's a fitting accompaniment to a tune that shares many of the same characteristics.
