Discussing his creative process, Butler said he finds it easier to write songs in Shiny Shiny Black’s genre than craft industrial-style music.
“Something seems to work a lot better when I sit down with an acoustic guitar and start playing and then sing along to it,” he said. “...That was a conscious choice with this project, was to always start from that point. I think if there’s any continuity to the songs, that’s where it’s coming from is that all of them started from just playing on a real instrument and then developing a melody and then singing along to it. Which is a pretty different approach to the stuff that I had personally done before.
“It seems to have worked out pretty well.”
