“Imagine taking the Smashing Pumpkins and squishing them together with Sigur Ros and My Bloody Valentine” - exploremusic.com

(The) Butterfly Explosion are a band from Ireland that blend powerful spiraling music with delicate vocals to form rich soundscapes of beautiful melodies, gliding between moments of ethereal dreampop and explosive sonic bliss.

The debut album ‘LOST TRAILS’ was released March 2010 on Revive Records, recorded and produced with Torsten Kinsella (God Is An Astronaut). A week after the release Butterfly Explosion jumped into the top 5 of Last.FM’s “hyped artists” chart and also broke into the CMJ college radio charts in USA with album tracks featuring in dozens of top 30 playlists.

Since the album release the band have toured UK, USA, Ireland, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Austria, Spain and Portugal. Other highlights have included festival appearances at SXSW 2010 in Austin and CMW 2011 in Toronto.

When UK webzine Drowned In Sound had a week of articles in April 2009 dedicated to the revival and diverse influence of the early 90s shoegaze scene, Butterfly Explosion were amongst the international artists highlighted as ones to watch.

    @ColFang: You'd think wouldn't you? But their Facebook page doesn't have a "the" and they wrote that themselves :S

    I can't believe something can be so intense, yet being so dreamy and light. Perfect. Needs more recognition.

    I'm really glad I found this band. I've only been listening for a few days but I think Lost Trails will end up being one of my favourite albums!

    Isn't the correct name The Butterfly Explosion, as written on the covers ?

    “Imagine taking the Smashing Pumpkins and squishing them together with Sigur Ros and My Bloody Valentine” And that only begins to describe it.

    I was really dissapointed by this band, in general is very boring but the worst thing is the voice, they sound like linking park

    I prefer the Sophia from their EP, don't really like drums on the album for that track. Still a great song though.

    After over a year now Lost Trails still sounds amazing. Hoping for more brilliance from them in the not so distant future.
