Fuck Buttons Announce North American Tour
Slow Focus Out Today via ATP Recordings
Fuck Buttons’ Benjamin John Power and Andrew Hung release their highly anticipated album Slow Focus today in the USA via ATP Recordings. The release marks the duo’s first self-produced record, and one that looks set to re-shape the landscape of the leftfield all over again.
Once again abiding by their fundamental rule that “we must always be in the same room when writing,” what Fuck Buttons have created on Slow Focus is something that feels more close-up than ever before, a first-person view through winding pathways set against a frequently aggressive and constantly evolving terrain. It’s an ominously shimmering mirage that could only have come from their own volition.
You could argue this is the first album where the pair have really gone all in, taking control right down to producing it at their own Space Mountain studio. “We've used producers as safety nets in the past,” says Andrew Hung, “but we've always had a very specific idea of what our music should sound like and so it became about following the logical path.”
