Ok Button + L-space
OK Button are a dream-pop trio from Scotland composed of Amber Wilson, Nass Donald and Adam Falkner. Together with producer Craigie Dodds, they have all had illustrious careers in music before forming OK Button, with bands like Bombay Bicycle Club, Babyshambles and Gorillaz featuring in their formidable résumés. Describing their music as a fresh, eclectic sound with a solid backbone, the band released their first single The Message last year to rapturous appraise. Their follow up singles Beds, and Flesh & Blood followed in similar style, gaining the band three New Music Friday UK placements in a row. After being tipped as one of Jim Gellatly's 10 for 2019 on Amazing Radio, the year is looking bright already. The band have just made the long list of Glastonbury's Emerging Talent competition and have upcoming slots at The Great Escape festival. Their first EP "Sepia Spectres" is due for release in Summer. Everything will be OK.
