Published Jan 07, 2010Originally from Edmonton, Montreal-based singer-songwriter Sean Nicholas Savage has been writing and recording complicated yet simple pop songs for a while, though he's always flown under the radar. Hopefully, that will change when Montreal label Arbutus Records releases his new album, later this month.
The record, called Spread Like a Butterfly, continues Savage's streak of endlessly catchy, vaguely off-putting pop. According to a press release, the album follows the strenuous heartbreak that comes with growing up.
"One could view Savage's previous work as a defiant final celebration of a fast-retreating childhood, a final romp in a forest rich with nymphs and coquettes," the release states. "Spread Free Like a Butterfly trades the impulsiveness and fire-breathing of youth for the comforts and indeed the great sadness of a new maturity."
Spread Like a Butterfly will be available on vinyl from Arbutus Records on January 11. The tracks "Dreamers Die Hard" and "Heart Wish" can be heard here.
