CD REVIEW: The Telepathic Butterflies

Catchy Butterflies

The Telepathic Butterflies
An Album
Butterflysongs



Rundown: The Telepathic Butterflies recorded and mixed their songs from their very own home. With the exception of three tracks, we are introduced to a five-piece instrumental rock band that has a feel-good sound and interesting lyrics, which were written by vocalist R. Ricard. This Canadian band brings a catchy but unique sound to the music scene, which will hopefully guarantee them a promising future.

Key Tracks: Although each one of the songs on the CD is enjoyable to listen to in its own way, "A Final Word," "Narcissus" and "Mr. Laughabee's Circus" are three tracks with remarkably catchy tunes. Due to Ricard's clever and unique lyrics, the band is able to maintain its own style and avoid sounding too cliché. As one might perceive, the band's interesting name reflects the uniqueness of their lyrics.

Sounds Like: When initially introduced to a band, you may experience that feeling of having to listen to the songs over and over again before being able to entirely appreciate their music. However, The Telepathic Butterflies present upbeat tunes and catchy lyrics that will have you hooked the first time around. Their sound is reminiscent of Sloan, with a sort of British vibe. It is definitely a CD to listen to while in the mood to kick back and enjoy the day.
