Triathalon are ready for your attention.

The trio are releasing their first full length since moving to New York from Savannah. The aptly named, Online is a balance of live instrumentation, samples, and R&B know-how paired with experimental pop production and flourishes.

And The 405 is here with the premiere of their latest track, ‘Butter’.

In the vein of Childish Gambino and crossover artists before them, Triathalon mix the grit and free spirit offered in hip-hop with pop-smart crooning and bass lines dripping with honey. But sampling beats or melodies, even when written by the artist, has its limits. That’s where a track like ‘Butter’ glistens. It may seem small, but around the 45-second mark and about one minute later, there is an odd, droning synth that immediately solidifies the song. It’s the bridge between studio production and artists branching out. It encapsulates the laid-back attitude of their southern roots with the unapologetic experimentation New York is known for.

With all of its layering, ‘Butter’ is still minimalist in its intentions. There’s a drunken swagger to the song, but its honesty only makes you trust it more. It’s a song for after 1:00 AM at a house party or a hazy afternoon chillin’ with your own thoughts. Check it out below, and make sure to pick up Online on February 16th.
