F*ck Buttons take the next step in their continuing mission to expand the sonic landscape with the release of a new single, ‘Olympians’, on 12th April 2010. The pioneering duo will also play their biggest UK shows to date as part of a tour, including a headline show at London’s Koko, in April.
‘Olympians’ is taken from F*ck Buttons’ second album, ‘Tarot Sport’, a record that graced the high end of most critics’ Best Of 2009 lists. The track got its name after the band undertook a train journey above the 2012 Olympics construction site whilst listening to mixes of the album and everything seemed to fall into place. The suitability of the title was evident and in their own words “the striving forward drive of this song makes us think of imminent glory’. ‘Olympians’ embodies that feeling: an aural depiction of something vast that presents something unique with each listen.
The single will be released with a special remix and artwork designed by the band – more news to follow on this.
F*ck Buttons can also be seen crafting their hypnotic textures live when they play their biggest headline show to date at London’s Koko in April before taking their blistering live set further around the UK.
