Butterflies On Pins, a psychedelic post-punk band formed of Ross Liddle (Voice/Words), Katie Green (Bass/Drum Programming/Other Voices) & Rob Alexander (Guitars/Production), have released a four-track EP, Screen One. The band spoke with The Fountain about how it has been received thus far as well as their plans for the future.
TF: You have a new EP out, what has the reception been like to Screen One?
So far the reception has been fantastic, we’re really pleased. We put a hell of a lot of work into putting together a coherent whole, a musical and lyrical journey spanning four songs. I always think back to the classic four-track EP’s like those that My Bloody Valentine and Ride used to put out, as well as stuff like Reptile House EP by the Sisters of Mercy. They were almost mini albums in and of themselves. So I think we have achieved that.
TF: How would you sum it up in one sentence?
The sound of rain rumbling across the fabric of your umbrella as you stand on the banks of the moonlit Thames.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this EP release?
We are working on a follow-up EP and eventually what will be our debut album.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
If and when the turbulent NOW becomes a THEN, we will be looking to tour. My favourite venues we’ve played are the Shacklewell Arms and Paper Dress Vintage. Both are home from home.
