about

Bye Bye Butterfly to Ola Bilińska (Babadag, Berjozkele, Muzyka Końca Lata) i Daniel Pigoński (Polpo Motel, Der Father, ex-Pustki), dwie osobowości muzyczne połączone zamiłowaniem do pięknych melodii, analogowych brzmień i eksperymentów z klasyczną formą piosenki. Propozycja tej dwójki w nowej odsłonie powinna zainteresować zarówno fanów katalogu wytwórni 4AD, jak i filmów Davida Lyncha.

Debiutancka płyta Bye Bye Butterfly „do come by” to rozbudowane formalnie piosenki o zapadających w pamięć, eterycznych melodiach, którym towarzyszą vintage’owe syntezatory, automaty perkusyjne i analogowe efekty. Rezultat - mroczne, chłodne w brzmieniu, choć napakowane emocjami kompozycje. Są tu echa bel canto, jak i psychodelii, Paryża lat 20-tych i Berlina lat 80-tych. Teksty utworów, inspirowane “Boską Komedią” Dantego, to przewrotne refleksje nad metafizyką, życiem, śmiercią i życiem po życiu, snute głosami zagubionych, piekielnych, czyśćcowych i niebiańskich dusz, które wodzą na pokuszenie, ostrzegają, przychodzą po prośbie, dzielą się swoim pozagrobowym doświadczeniem. Razem - muzyka i teksty - tworzą przestrzeń z pogranicza światów i epok, oszczędną i ekspresyjną zarazem – trudną do sklasyfikowania.

Zespół postawił na soczyste brzmienie taśmy i starego, analogowego sprzętu, nagrywając na żywo w studio im. Adama Mickiewicza w Warszawie, pod okiem Macieja Cieślaka, który nagrał gościnnie także partie gitar. Drugim gościem na płycie jest Paweł Szpura, który żywą perkusją dodał rumieńców automatom perkusyjnym.

Track Name: Having Lived Through Half of My Life, I Found Me in a Gloomy Wood
HAVING LIVED THROUGH HALF OF MY LIFE,
I FOUND ME IN A GLOOMY WOOD

Having lived through half of my life
I found me in a gloomy wood
And when I wandered off the right path
I suddenly reached a mountain’s foot

The forest so rough set fear in my mind
The valley had pierced my heart with dread
Surrounded by beasts while climbing to the top
I saw a good man ahead

Having lived through half of my life
I found me in a gloomy wood
And when I wondered off the right path
I suddenly reached a mountain’s foot
Track Name: Do Come By
DO COME BY

I won’t wait alone in the fire
Time goes by so slowly in the fire
Birds and bees don’t fly near the fire
Lay with me my love

Do come by, do come by...

You can fuel my thoughts and the fire
Black hearts burn like coal in the fire

Do come by, do come by...
Track Name: Never Return
NEVER RETURN

To the mount of light
To the mount of light you’d led your steps
The panther, wolf and lion
The panther, wolf and lion perched ahead
To the bowel of mine
To the bowel of mine, in time, you came
Leave all hope behind
Leave all hope behind who cross the gate

Lo so, lo so..... they never return
Andró, andró..... you might never return

To the city of woe
To the city of woe you pass through my mouth
Walk among the lost
Walk among the lost along the path
Through the bowel of mine
Through the bowel of mine the nine steps of hell
Leave all hope behind
Leave all hope behind who cross the gate
Track Name: My Love
MY LOVE

Since you came, my love
I’ve been wanting to know you
Since you came, my love
I’ve been longing to show you
my love
I’ve been wanting to see you
my love

Since you came, my love
I’ve been meaning to tell you
Since you showed up my love
I’ve been longing to call you
my love
I’ve been planning to show you
my love
I’ve been dying to hold you
my love

Been longing to show you
my love, my love...
Track Name: Woman
WOMAN

We rose out of blood and blood drips from our black eyes eyes, WOMAN
Our waists and temples with snakes and adders are bound bound, WOMAN
Vengeance and anger are objects of our old trade trade, WOMAN
On the circling walls we hide our bat wings and we wait, wait...

On your knees and bow your head to the fury of WOMAN
Count your sins and your blessings for the fury WOMAN

Till the very end we serve the lady of woe woe
We’ll punish anyone who will swear a false oath oath

On your knees and bow your head to the fury of WOMAN
Count your sins and your blessings for the fury WOMAN
Track Name: Apple Tree
APPLE TREE

Far away and long ago
You took my heart and took me whole
And when I crossed the river wide
You forgot my poor abandoned soul

Rest your mind
Cause nobody knows what you might find
Under this apple tree
Of evil and good – eternity

All things must pass, wither away
Yet you will live another day
You’re no rock, no plant, no animal
You come from the grace of the above

Rest your mind
Cause nobody knows what you might find
Under this apple tree
Of evil and good – eternity
Track Name: Farewell, I'm Falling
FAREWELL, I’M FALLING

What lonely soul is this
Comes knocking on my door
I cannot open it
It’ll yearn forevermore

Hear me, I’m calling
Let me inside
I need your warmth
I need your light

What lonely soul is this
That haunts me in my sleep
I’m not afraid of it
I hide my treasures deep

Help me, I’m falling
Can’t you hear me call
He’ll rest my soul
Will he rest my soul

Farewell, I’m falling
Don’t hold my hand
I’ll pull you down
I’ll pull you down
Track Name: Sweet Honey Pie
SWEET HONEY PIE

Tututu....
There’s a soul in the body, Domine
Tututu....
What is ash will turn to ashes, Domine
Tututu....

Neath the sheltering sky, what can you hide?
Neath the all-seeing eye, where can you go?
The dark pit of your soul

Believe – or die
Sweet honey pie

There’s a soul in the body, Domine
Tututu...

Neath the sheltering sky, what can you hide...

Believe – or die
Sweet honey pie
