The Telepathic Butterflies - Breakfast in Suburbia
The Telepathic Butterflies is a psychedelic name for a band, fittingly their music aides this notion. Psych pop, wait – this totally sounds like it could be released on Rainbow Quartz, let me check…Holy s***, there actually is a Rainbow Quartz logo on the back. Another sweet signing by the R-B Q team. (That actually happened – I had to physically get up from my desk and look in an envelope).
There is a Joe Jackson feel coming through in a couple of the tracks, the difference is the level of reality in the voice - if that makes any sense. What I mean is the singer has the kind of voice that you can relate to. The TpBf’s sing about personal issues, in an open manner, the vocal harmonies that feature across the release are the type that you try to emulate, but can never get, unless you have had a little bit to drink, in which case you will totally get it.
I recommend this band to anyone looking for a sweet sweet summer sounding band. Though these guys are from Canada, which isn’t all that sunny. Never the less, this is what they sound like: beautiful sunsets and golden romance found on a fun night out - with a dose of the morning after, yeah.
