BOTTLER is the electronic duo of Brooklyn musicians Pat Butler and Phil Shore. As lifelong friends, their creative bond is one forged in a partnership of musical exploration. Their continuous discovery of electronic, indie rock, and classical converges as BOTTLER.
Sonically, BOTTLER represents a new step toward musical freedom. They’re inspired to pursue every idea and dance across the thinly constructed boundaries of aesthetic. Free of a preoccupation with genre or form, they blend indie dance and electro pop with acoustic, digital, and analog instrumentation.
After forming and touring various musical projects for a decade, they settled down at the end of the 20-teens and founded BOTTLER. Inspired by the wide spectrum of sounds they would encounter in both the vibrant Brooklyn music scene and daily life, BOTTLER took care to craft a wholly unique style that was equal parts their past and their present. They are imbued with the music echoing off the walls of Brooklyn clubs like Good Room, Black Flamingo, Elsewhere, and Magick City. They spend countless hours crate digging at record shops like Academy Records, Captured Tracks and Rough Trade.
With all distractions set aside, they locked themselves in the studio with the unwavering devotion and intensity of their musical heroes like Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Bonobo, and Caribou. Shortly thereafter, they posted a two track demo online, and were quickly discovered by InFiné, who will release their debut CLEMENTINE EP in 2020.
