Having released their debut EP Sepia Spectres earlier this year, dream-pop Scottish trio OK Button are back with a new song called “Nostalgia” and a music video to accompany. The haunting track about dealing with the past perfectly sums up the band’s ethereal sound.
OK Button was formed after band members Adam Falkner and Amber Wilson met in an Aberdeen underground music venue, where the later was playing an acoustic set. Serving as vocalist for Morcheeba and Bombay Bicylcle Club, and drummer for One Eskimo and Babyshambles respectively, the two started a musical side project together.
They were quickly joined by multi-instrumentalist Nass Donald, as well as producer and writer Craigie Dodds (Amy Winehouse, Gorillaz, Sugababes), and began creating music under the name of OK Button. Exploring such themes as anxiety and isolation, the band offer subtle but touching indie-pop pieces, which didn’t escape the attention of such taste-makers as Clash Magazine and Tom Robinson from BBC 6 Music.
Following the release of four successful singles this year, the group signed to LAB records and are ready to share with fans more new music. Their latest offering conveys the need to move on in life. “Written during a period of feeling completely lost – ‘Nostalgia’ is a love letter to old friends and my home town of Aberdeen”, says vocalist Amber Wilson. “It’s about coming to terms with change and letting go”.
The track arrives alongside a fittingly melancholic music video, which shows the singer take a trip down memory lane. Helmed by acclaimed director Milda Baginskaite and filmed in Formby Beach, the atmospheric clip brings to mind the works of Sofia Coppola and complements perfectly OK Button’s dreamy, entrancing music.
