Butterfly Explosion are a band from Ireland that blend powerful spiraling music with delicate vocals to form rich soundscapes of beautiful melodies, gliding between moments of ethereal dreampop and explosive sonic bliss.
The debut album 'LOST TRAILS' is released February 2010 on Irish label Revive Records. 'Closer', the first single, has been receiving extensive airplay from Ireland's leading alternative music shows such as Paul McLoone(TodayFM) and Dan Hegarty(2FM) who described the track as "My Bloody Valentine meets M83 meets Sigur Ros in Heaven".
With two critically acclaimed EPs, the band have toured from Dublin to London and New York to Toronto with bands such as Howling Bells, God Is An Astronaut, 65daysofstatic, Serena Maneesh, Film School, Land Of Talk, Giant Drag, The Like and The Delays.
While recording on the debut album began late 2008, the band's growing profile was helped further by appearances on compilation releases in the UK by Invada Records ("The Secret Garden - the new wave of shoegaze") and Northern Star Records ("Psychedelica 3"). When UK webzine Drowned In Sound had a week of articles in April 2009 dedicated to the revival and diverse influence of the early 90s shoegaze scene, Butterfly Explosion were amongst the international artists highlighted as ones to watch.
