Terrible Buttons adds a little darkness to their blues/folk roots. Formed nearly two years ago on the streets of Portland by vocalists Sarah Berentson and Kent Ueland, Terrible Buttons, located in Spokane, WA, now consists of 7 full-time members.
Although Terrible Buttons uses a menagerie of instruments, they pride themselves in the overall simplicity of their music in an attempt to accent their lyrics, which approach topics ranging from the evils of marriage to loneliness and the absence of god. Their ceaseless work ethic and urgent sound have garnered them attention from some of the biggest names in independent music production today, including “iTunes Top 100” artists Ryan Lewis, as well as Grammy Award winning producer and composer Pete Stewart. Keep an eye out for Terrible Buttons as the tour bus continues to roll, and they continue to challenge the bounds of today’s often-tired folk paradigm.
