- No Longer Living In Your Shadow by Butterfly Child
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 09 November 2012
Okay, hands up who HASN’T reformed. I can see Mr Morrissey and Mr Marr’s hands go up but...anyone else? There are so many reformations that even an old cynic like me is quite happy at one or two of them. I’ve just been trying to convince the others that The Wolfhounds reformation is a very good thing and whilst I wittered, the soft melodic dreampop of Butterfly Child makes a re-appearance.
I can barely remember them first time round other than they were kind of linked to AR Kane and were signed to the Dedicated label. This is very pretty acoustic melodic pop that is in no way far away from the kind of stuff now produced by My Autumn Empire. Nice comforting melodies and jangling guitars. The vocals are a little harsh on the upper register but it sits on a meringue of such softness that my ears are still soothed. Imagine a tuneful, less arch Divine Comedy being produced by Robin Guthrie and you are somewhere close.It’s good. It’s possibly great. It’s also very, very long, this is the longest 7” I’ve seen for a while. The B side is a little Grimshaw, a little Del Amitri but I can’t complain about music this tuneful. It would be like having a dig at a particularly floppy-eared spaniel.
Get alerted to new stock from this artist / label.
