about

'APARTMENTS'...

It isn't just the name of our debut EP, it is also where Hit The B Button! was born.
Our humble beginnings.
Our first practice space.

We all got together one day at Stuart's tiny pad which was within a small apartment complex to play some music and hang. Within the cramped and cluttered spare room, 2 brothers and their best friend discovered a musical bond that lay dormant within, that needed to be exposed. After the neighbors gave us sh*t for being too awesome, Phil declared that even though he wasn't sure if our little amps were loud enough, we should definitely play some rock shows.

[Luckily that exact moment that started our band was recorded on tape during our first jam session and can be heard at the beginning of 'Sorry About This Steven']

'Apartments' shows you what 'Hit The B Button!' is all about. We like to explore a wide range of different styles throughout, with influences such as Box Car Racer & Biffy Clyro to The Beatles & Stevie Wonder.

The entire EP has been built by us from scratch. Everything from the artwork, production, recording, song writing to the website creation and self publishing on media websites.

'Apartments' is just the first glimpse of what Hit The B Button! have to offer.

about

Hit The B Button! Belfast, UK

A venomous four piece who thrive on ripping apart the conventional and frankensteining it back together to create monstrous Alt Rock magic.

Their twisted blend of face melting riffs and pop sensibilities have been compared to the likes of Biffy Clyro and Jimmy Eat World. With Ledgerwood’s vocals drawing comparisons to Dryden Mitchell of Alien Ant Farm or Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria.

Track Name: Martial
I could convert you
But I never would do
There is peace and there's virtue
With pictures of me
You with your reasons
The flag waving freedom
The gunpowder treason
More fish in the sea

Someone told me I'm a fool
For you

The fires and riots
The suicide pilots
They lay in the violets
They lay next to me
Glorified reasons
The morons of treason
They'd call you a heathen
Then piss in the sea

Someone told me I'm a fool
For you
Someone told me you were cool
Didn't you?

The way they walk
The fear
They've seen it all before
Down on their knees
The keys are in the door
The seventies are here
The nineteen-seventies
So funky and,
The way they walk
The fear
They've seen it all before
Down on their knees
The keys are in the door
The seventies are here
The nineteen-seventies

I can't explain you falling down
I can't explain us falling out
Track Name: Blue Potion
To soothe
Inject the blue
I got an ocean in my veins
Tick-tock
The poison clock
Has got thirteen hours on it
The calming waves will bounce off
The ripples of your love
This mask of water comes and goes
It comes and goes

What could I do with these home cooked blues
but throw 'em away?

I
Don't
Want to lose control again

Slurring sound and vision
Happily i'd pay for this
My body feels like desert
And my mind's an amethyst

I've drown in waters
Deeper than your concern
I've been getting high
In the Ancient Cistern

What could i do with these home cooked blues
Except give 'em to you

I
Don't
Want to lose control again

You gotta kick the Blue Potion baby
Or swallow it down, down, down
Track Name: The Ganges
See-saw lovin'
You know you gotta relax
A shot of whiskey
Dowsed by two Prozac
Lord Gordy told me to
Deny Contact

All that I have is with me
Traveling lightly
But love for you
My Annabelle I want to tell you

Nothing but the funk
The whole funk and nothing but the funk

I just can't do this no more
Ain't got the energy
I'm going to jump in the sea
To refresh my Chi
And if the water is warm
She's like an anarchy
All over me

You can burn my body
It's only time
That's my concern
I'm feeling high
When engines burn

Nothing but the funk
The whole funk and nothing but the funk

I just can't do this no more
Ain't got the energy
I'm going to jump in the sea
To refresh my Chi
And if the water is warm
She's like an anarchy
All over me

The day my shadow
Starts reflecting off the sun and the moon
I'll let my spirit fly outside
It will all be over soon
The day my shadow
Starts reflecting off the sun and the moon
I'll let my spirit fly on by
It will all be over soon

We'll burn at The Ganges
The Ganges

Let's Go!
Track Name: Sorry about this Steven
Abandoned hope he left for the island
Casting shadows in the pond
Toward tomorrow
And the silence stops this infection
Killing 'Octoroks' with Deku Shield deflections

Did I make you stutter?
Did I make you pacify your own desires?
Well I know
I'm not afraid to love again
No
Did I make you nervous?
Did I make you reinvent your intellect?
Well I know
Your not afraid to lose a friend

Your house is not a home
Steven
We're so sorry your gone
Define what's not enough
Steven, please go home and sober up

You woke up a mess on the kitchen floor
With a guitar around your neck and a hole in the door
Stop shaking your head
I won't forgive and forget
The mellow passage
It's fuel for burning the bridge
The flames are climbing the ridge
Of that mountain

Did I make you stutter?
Did I make you pacify your own desires?
Well I know
I'm not afraid to love again
No
Did I make you nervous?
Did I make you reinvent your intellect?
Well I know
Your not afraid to lose a friend

Your house is not a home
Steven
We're so sorry your gone
(Away without your last words)
Define what's not enough
Steven, please go home and sober up

Your house is not a home
Steven your house is nothing but a hole
You've dug for yourself
In the muddy ground
Track Name: Oh Olga! Live @ Cool FM [Bonus Track]
It's Bittersweet
To buy me things
With no disregard
For lesser beings
Don't tie me down
With Puppet strings
Don't turn me round
To the beginning

Just like a stone
I'm on a roll
You'll never tie me down
Your brown hair
Curtains the air
Of every other town

Oh Olga!
You dance in the midnight air
Oh Olga!
It seems like she don't even care
Oh Olga, Oh Olga, Oh Olga
Your dancing on the wire, the wire the wire
You never realise that you eyes will ignite
In the midnight air

You sleep alone
Almost every night
And I've been bitten by a bug
But I feel alright

Just like a stone
I'm on a roll
You'll never tie me down
Your brown hair
Curtains the air
Of every other town

Oh Olga!
You dance in the midnight air
Oh Olga!
It seems like she don't even care
Oh Olga, Oh Olga, Oh Olga
Your dancing on the wire, the wire the wire
You never realise that you eyes will ignite
In the midnight air

Oh Olga, Oh Olga, Oh Olga
You must be worth a fortune, a fortune, a fortune
It's safe to say that Olga, Oh Olga, Oh Olga
Your like a different person, person, person by now

Oh Olga!
