PUSH BUTTON PRESS
Surrounded by the worn bricks of Ybor city came a vision of sound. Echoing from vacant cigar factories and empty storefronts turned bohemian artistic enclaves. Push Button Press alias Jim and Jet from Tampa, Florida (USA) seemingly arose from within the cities secret smugglers tunnels, long abandoned beneath it’s busy streets. Sometimes to be seen and heard within the harrowing night clubs, then vanishing again.
It is as if Push Button Press returned again to the catacombs to continue their creations and perfect their craft. Combining elements of post-punk, modern electronics, and ancient instruments held together with the influence laid bare from the shotgun homes, Bolita games, and urban decay. Push Button Press are children of La Séptima. Born from the Impulse, the Masquerades, and the mercurial Castle. Their debut EP «Spectacle 1» was released in December 2018.
Push Button Press sophomore release on Cold Transmission Music entitled “Black Swan” is a tour de force of post-punk energy. Recorded in world-class studios with a multiple Grammy nominated engineer, “Black Swan” is a sonic pleasure. Stylistically it draws from the early days of guitar driven post-punk from bands like Joy Division, Bauhaus, Christian Death, and The Buzzcocks. They accomplish this while creating engrossing and polished songs you will listen too more than once.
