Butterfly Haus – ‘Time Bomb Season’
Brooklyn-based Butterfly Haus has released the must-hear album, ‘Time Bomb Season’. It is a stunning alternative-pop release you need to know about this Winter.
‘Wire Cutters (Intro)’ opens the release and sets the scene as to what is to come. Next, ‘One Step Forward Two Steps Back’ is a stunning song. It features soulful vocals, upbeat melodies and relatable, thought-provoking lyrics.
In addition, we adore ‘I’m Up’; it is a compelling song with lyrics that draw the listener in with layered vocals, brilliant delivery and a stoic beat. Also, the production is exquisite.
Moreover, ‘Used to the Pills’ takes the album in a fresh direction with an acoustic guitar and laid-back instrumentation, but the excellent songwriting is apparent throughout. Finally, ‘Futility’s Army closes the release beautifully.
Butterfly Haus says about the release, “Crafted in the aftermath of a stage-4 cancer diagnosis, a rocky period of existential angst, and scuffles with heartbreak, the album’s core revolve around hope vs hopelessness as well as the anxiety birthed from pressure and processing pain.”
Butterfly Haus cites his influences as coming from artists such as Kate Bush, Jay-Z, Arcade Fire, Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Angel Olsen, Grizzly Bear, Phil Collins and Prince. We can hear these muses coming through on ‘Time Bomb Season’, but Butterfly Haus stands shoulder-to-shoulder with any of these artists.
Butterfly Haus (Osaze Akerejah) is a talented Brooklyn-based producer and recording artist. In addition, he is a talented and driven musician making innovative music and one who pushes the boundaries of alternative pop.
Previously, Akerejah has released music under the moniker SAZE; after hearing ‘Time Bomb Season’, we can not wait to check out his earlier work too.
We are thrilled to have heard ‘Time Bomb Season’ and can not recommend Butterfly Haus highly enough. Listen to this wonderful album from the link below; you will not be disappointed!
