Bottler


Buffalo-born, Brooklyn-based indie electronic duo BOTTLER return to their hometown for a headline show at The 9th Ward, the finale to their Journey Work album world tour taking them across Europe, Canada, and the USA. The debut album is an amalgamation of a spectrum of sounds gathered from New York clubs, their days in the Buffalo indie scene, and their childhood classical training. The duo, made of Sleepy Hahas alums and longtime best friends Pat Butler and Phil Shore, combine a lifetime of live performance with a focus on dance floor grooves for an exhilarating, unpredictable, and dynamic live show.

AT THE CORE OF BOTTLER’S DIVERSE, MULTIFACETED OUTPUT IS A FOUNDATION BUILT ON A BROTHERHOOD OF SORTS.

The New York-based duo, Pat Butler and Phil Shore, are childhood friends whose bond is akin to that of blood relatives. Their parents are best friends and they grew up side by side, developing their deep love for music together; sharing discoveries and inspirations, learning to play and perform, and nurturing their creativity together.

Now formally ordained as Bottler, they channel their eclectic tastes into a sound that encapsulates the love and trust that forms the foundation of the friendship. The duo blend a myriad styles to create songs that emanate warmth, joy, sorrow, pain and the full spectrum of human emotion. It’s electronic music inspired by a broad range of artists, all connected by their liberated approach to production. Bold, unpretentious, raw, dynamic and highly creative, Bottler are a formidable duo poised to ignite the dance floor with their kaleidoscopic collection of sounds.
