Twin Peaks have released a new song today called “Butterfly,” the latest single off their forthcoming record Down In Heaven, out 5/13 on Grand Jury. The band is coming off a dope SXSW run, where we caught them kill it at the Fader Fort, so seeing them get back to business this quickly is a great sign that these guys just won’t stop until they conquer to Rock world.
Guitarist Clay Frankel said of the track:
This song was written in Texas last year for SXSW, when I was in a sickened state after playing twelve or so shows in five days. So the lyrics are a mixture of negativity and exhilaration. Exhilaration because I was doing what I most loved to do, and negativity because it was really taking a toll on my mind and body. Death was on the mind. Also sex. Also The Zombies (they played SXSW and there were posters of them everywhere). So I took the gentle and fleeting image of a butterfly and a simple group of chords and lots of yelling to make a sort of doomy dance song that quite honestly could be summed up as ‘let’s have sex because we’re all going to die.’
