The Bellybuttons are one of Glasgow’s best, who doesn’t like this band? Their sound has been described as ‘slacker-psych’ and ‘bubblegum garage’ but The Bellybuttons are obviously much more than this! With a wide variety of influences the band create an off-kilter and unhinged sound which is firmly grounded by their infectious pop melodies.
Listen to their Fuzzkill EP’s which showcase their tongue in cheek, satirical and snotty lyrics wrapped in sprawling reverb and bouncing riffs.
The Bellybuttons are no strangers to Mono and have graced the stage four times playing alongside Ultimate Painting, LYLO, Tomorrows Tulips and The Yummy Fur. This, their 5th show will be The Bellybuttons on their own alongside El Rancho DJs playing the dancing tunes till the end.
“Solidifying their status as one of the brightest new bands that Glasgow has to offer, ‘Why?’ feels like a mightily assured next-step, full of all that off-beat charm that has led them so well thus far.” GoldFlakePaint
“Part of the city’s bustling DIY scene, their off kilter indie rock recalls everyone from Pavement to Lou Reed, Television to Husker Du.” Clash
“A smart band that knows they can impress without really trying and given the quality of the songs on this EP, the results of a long player will be nothing short of astounding if they really try to impress us.” Rave Child
