Button Up

Rise To The Top (Button Up)

By • Sep 3rd, 2021 • Category: Single review

Button Up’s new single is a real soul stomper, although it is delivered with subtlety – it has the air of a timeless classic, could be from anytime in the last 40 years, and it also has an uplifting message.

This band have been through it a bit, with the tragic death of previous singer Paula Elliot in 2018. The storming vocals on this track are by Anne Marie Croal and the track was written by Button Up heid honcho (and Proclaimers bassist) Gary John Kane.

There is some great funky guitar, piano, solid backline and it really does have that classic Motown/Dexys atmosphere which is so hard to get right – recommended!
