i don’t know how to progress, it’s just a lack of confidence

♫ Butterflies on Strings – What Did John Stuart Mill Say Again?

There is something about Butterflies On Strings that seems transplanted straight from the mid-Nineties. That friendly alt-pop bounce and easy-breezy sing along vibe instantly brings me back to the early days of my love affair with music. “What Did John Stuart Mill Say Again?” is crisp guitar work, big hooks, and both “oooh”s and “aaahs,”  making it an instant pleasure to my ears. “What Did” is the London band’s debut single and is released April 1st as a sort of mini-EP with 2 b-sides. “The Suitcase Kid” is more ramshackle rock fun while “The Funniest Joke” is a tenderer affair, slowly picking up steam as is takes off into full churning breakdown. It’s all a bit of fresh air in this time of fuzzed out this or synthesized that. Nice.
