M. Butterfly is based in Brighton and does a lovely line in that kind of interesting slightly bleepy americana that the likes of Darlingside do so well these days, such as this track ‘Yes, Always’ . He told AUK: “I play slow sad Americana. I usually sing about death, love, tragedy, depression and sexuality. I try to always record on tape, as it’s what I had when I was little and I prefer the work ethic it creates. I’m very passionate about lyrics which is why the music is slow and simple.” You can get his album ‘M Butterfly I’ from Bandcamp here.
