Butterflies debut new single with music video

http://vimeo.com/81502495
Josh Kimbrough’s Butterflies have been meticulously crafting their follow-up to the beloved Residual Child over the last few months. In the meantime, Kimbrough has enlisted visual artist Adam Graetz to create a music video for a new song, titled “Ruins”. The track is a distinct departure for Butterflies, reveling in washes of synths and a dramatic bass groove. The accompanying video is an impressionistic, semi-narrative fantasy about the nature of memory. Watch above, and purchase “Ruins” digitally via Bandcamp.

Butterflies perform underneath a giant military parachute

In May of 2011, Josh Kimbrough, Joe Norkus and Bobby Britt were set to move out of their house and on to greater things. But before they left, they wanted to have one last house show in their communal space. Somehow they agreed upon buying a giant military parachute, and having the bands play beneath. What resulted was a strange and special night, promoted online with the hashtag “#justchuteme”.

Butterflies, Embarrassing Fruits and Rainbow Nerd all performed. Here’s Butterflies performing “Tired Pose”.

Butterflies will open for The Sea and Cake this Friday at Local 506 in Chapel Hill. You can get tickets here.

New songs from Midtown Dickens, Butterflies, Daniel Hart on compilation

Our friends over at Special Passenger Records have put together a very special compilation featuring new music from Midtown Dickens, Butterflies and Daniel Hart, among many others. Each bandwas asked to compose and record a new song relating to their hometowns for a compilation called Feels Like Coming Home. The comp is out now, and can be ordered, downloaded and listened to here. Now the teambehind the comp is traveling the country, creating a documentary about those very hometowns featured in the songs. We’re very happy to have so many of our artists involved in the project.
