Butterclock

Butterclock (aka Laura Clock), who first caught our ear when she sang live with oOoOO on tour and then contributed to his 2012 EP, is finally putting out her own debut release, the First Prom EP, on o F F is love imprint F A N T A S Y m u s i c this February. You can pre-order the EP from the F A N T A S Y webstore now (it's limited to 200 copies).

Butterclock recently revealed the video for the EP's first single, "Don't," which she co-directed herself, along with Dario Natale. Laura's a pop singer at heart, but like Grimes, Purity Ring, or Maria Minerva, she heavily manipulates her vocals and backs them with dark, warped beats to produce weirder and more psychedelic results. It should appeal to fans of the work she's done with oOoOO and her own past recordings that she's posted to soundcloud over the last couple years.

Butterclock is AMAZING.... at making the worst aural garbage ever fathomed.

I'd like to butter her clock, and by "butter" I mean "put butter on her toast," and by "clock" I mean "serve it to her on a plate next to some eggs."

She would probably find that quite scrumptious, 6:20! That would be a very considerate gesture for a deserving lady!

Tonight I'm going to write "butterclock" on my forehead and hit the bars. Should be interesting!

Unfortunate choice of name. Are all the good ones really taken?

No, the best one hadn't been taken yet, until Butterclock took it.
