band of holy joy
how to kill a butterfly
alternately abrasive & delicate guitar, devastating melody-soaked violin, rolling bass, eerie electronics & thundering drums.
the veterans retain that vivid edge, exploring a weird northern hinterland where the rural & industrial meet, delving deeply into the landscape with incisive songs. they unfold slowly, subtly, creeping up on you, taking their time but not averse to kicking in a door or 2 if necessary. “what could be dark & troubled is somehow a comforting vindication of life: mystical, knowing & wise… oxymorons of beauty, grime, darkness & light abound, with an injection of humour throughout… an album that demands you sit down & digest” - louder than war.
