Leeds based Alt-Pop sensation, Lucy Booth, kicks off her music career with this catchy, ethereal single, ‘Butterfly’. Creating the perfect combination of enchanting melodies, warm vocals and poetic lyrics, Lucy oozes a dream-like quality in which the listener can easily indulge.
Inspired by the resilience of humanity ‘Butterfly’ paints a picture of the very real challenges of single motherhood. Dealing with the emotional impact of abandonment and loneliness, whilst also trying to be brave for the sake of a child.
The sweet, bright sound of the marimba, intentionally at odds with the hopelessness of the lyrics, cleverly represents how we often pretend to ourselves and others that we're coping, when inside we're really struggling. This authentic and relatable single showcases Lucy’s songwriting perfectly and gives us a glimpse of what is to come with the rest of her debut EP ‘Melancholy Blue’ on Friday 14th June.
Music video coming on Saturday 25th May
