New Ferri: “Butterfly Illumination”

Here’s a change of pace from the louder stuff that has been popping up on this blog over the past week…I last wrote about Ferri a few years back, but lost track of her since. She just released a new album, titled Infinity (errrr, the infinity symbol, that is), and it is a solid listen – she mainly works in a drifty, ambient-pop-ish style where her voice multiplies and everything just sort of floats on by, but she balances those vaporous moments out with more hard hitting tracks. “Butterfly Illumination” – above – touches on both sides. It opens as a soft piano-guided number, with Ferri’s voice trickling in at times, the whole thing very plaintive. Then the beat kicks in, and her voice starts off and this become a much more shifty number.
