IAN ROLAND & THE SUBTOWN SET – Release ‘Butterfly’ Single + Video

As elegant in sound and fluttering in melody as the creature of its inspiration, ‘Butterfly’ finds the outfit spreading their wings with this intricate and soul-warming modern-folk composition.

Casting off the shadows of previous single ‘In The Darkness’, this latest release sees frontman and songwriter Ian Roland daydreaming of the wonders of Spring, while reminiscing on the fondest memories that decorated his own childhood.

Opening-up about the emotive lyrics of ‘Butterfly’, Roland says:

“‘Butterfly’ is a song about walks with my children when they were younger, around Kew Gardens and Wakehurst Place, a botanic garden housing Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank and it’s a song about my own childhood, climbing trees in Mayow Park, the oldest municipal park in the South London borough of Lewisham.”
