Wunderhorse has shared his dynamic new single ‘Butterflies’.

The songwriter has built an intriguing solo universe, with debut single ‘Teal’ giving way to spacious follow ups ‘Poppy’ and ’17’.

New single ‘Butterflies’ is a crunching, intense return, reminiscent of Radiohead circa ‘The Bends’.

His voice is melodic but tinged with emotion, the biting lyrics discussing sexual frustration and disenchantment.

As he puts it: ‘Butterflies’ is about a sexual experience I had with an older girl when I was still very young. I didn’t know what I was doing at all and it spun me out for a while.

I remember coming up with the main guitar riff, at that time it was the darkest sounding bit of music I’d written. The first set of lyrics didn’t really match the sinister nature of the music, so I decided to revisit an experience that made me feel uneasy the same way the music did.

Tune in now.

Wunderhose will play a two night sold out residency in The Blue Basement @ Third Man Records, London on May 25th, 26th.
