Scots band OK Button have dropped their second single.

The synth-pop trio released Beds on Friday, following on from the success of debut track The Message.

The band - Amber Wilson, Nass Donald and Adam Falkner - told STV News: "It's hard to put into words the exhilaration of unleashing your songs into the big wide world.

"We really hope people find a connection with Beds like we did - it has been a real labour of love."

Combining heady electronic beats with dreamy vocals, Beds pulls you in with its stunning hooks - leaving you hungry for more. It's also tinged with a slight melancholy which complements the meaning behind the song.

Amber said: "We've become so consumed by technology and materialism that we're often totally distracted from what's happening right in front of us.

"Beds reflects on how we go through the motions while the world is falling to pieces around us. It's important that we acknowledge that in order to move forward.

"The chorus is darkly sarcastic but, on another level, it refers to having the strength to carry on when you're awake. Every day we wake up and have another shot at doing something useful which is a win."

'The audience can expect a darkly dreamy atmosphere with some goosebumps along the way.'
OK Button on their debut live show

OK Button was born out of a chance meeting.

Amber was performing an acoustic set in her native Aberdeen when Adam fortuitously stumbled upon her gig. The two formed a friendship and began sharing song ideas over email.

The process served as a welcome escapism from the loneliness of being on the road with their respective musical projects - Amber as vocalist with Bombay Bicycle Club and Morcheeba, and Adam as a drummer for One Eskimo and Babyshambles.

The duo teamed up with multi-instrumentalist Nass and writer/producer Craigie Dodds (Amy Winehouse, Gorillaz, Sugababes) and thus the outfit's dark electronic, synth-pop sound was born.

As well as plans to film a music video for their third single at the end of the year, the band can't wait to hit the stage for their live debut at The Poetry Club in Glasgow on November 20.

The trio added: "We can't wait for our first show.

"The process of writing, recording and planning a release can be long, so to get the songs out and start playing live shows is a real celebration for us - very exciting.

"The audience can expect a darkly dreamy atmosphere with some goosebumps along the way."
