Following up their 2005 Vision EP, Ireland rockers Butterfly Explosion has released more genre blending fun in a minimal package of five songs. Set to be released in August of 2006, the Turn the Sky EP is just one more small taste of the blockbuster to come.
Butterfly Explosion plays with dynamics and tries to pack as much as it can into the simplest melodies. By using repetitive and simple non-effected guitar rhythms such as those found in "Next Year," Butterfly Explosion makes volume changes and distortion sound like a bigger deal than it would be in other songs. Slow climaxes as well build up to a final moment in the song, when all hell is seemingly let loose and a chill runs down spines. The final climax itself is not all that impressive, but when paired with the painfully slow build-up its brilliant.
Also found in this release is "Car Park," another instrumental that tries to top the power found in their previously released "Vision" but falls just short. More vocal tracks can be found in this EP as well, shedding light on Butterfly Explosion’s simple song writing. Just as in the instrumentals, the vocals are kept simple and soft until a final climax when an ear, used to the quiet, is assaulted with which in other cases, might be moderately loud singing.
Butterfly Explosion shows again masterful technique in instrumentals and applies the same formula to their vocals, providing yet another ambient and softly powerful EP. Don’t miss this one.
