Butterspy

BandRockPop

Excellent songwriting with echoes of 70's rock and motown roots. Using Beatlesque melodies over the top of aggressive rhythm driven hooks, this band definitely stands out.

Biography

Perception is everything.

A Brit from Liverpool, a Canadian from Toronto and an American from Jersey say so.

The sound is melody driven, groove infused pop/rock (Beatles-Motown)

With a shift in our perception, everything we think we know can transform before our eyes. We were born into our generations' existing perception of reality and accepted the program. As information and understanding continue to evolve, new discoveries have us re-think our current version of “how things really are”.
The revelation is in realizing that reality is always there unchanged and that only ‘our perception’ of it changes.
Our music reflects on this theme jumping from the “big picture” to the little and having a great time in-between.

Lyrics

Shine

Written By: Butterspy

SHINE

I’ve entered into something
Once believed a mystery
And I am doing all I can
The church of old kept secrets
They believed weren’t meant for me
And now it’s time I understand
(chorus)
Let it shine
All through my mind
I’m losing time living blind
Let it shine

I think that truth is light
You can’t keep it in the dark
And I am doing all I can
So lets take the bread of life
And feed the pigeons in the park
‘cause we deserve the promised land
(repeat chorus)

We are the royalty
of eternity
its in our blood
to be a brotherhood
do you hear what I’m saying?
This ain’t something that’s waiting to be found

We are here and this is our land
Can you understand?
You’re like a grain of sand on a bigger beach
Stretch out and reach
‘cause now’s the time for us to shine
Consciousness is the new frontier
You have to conquer fear to get yourself here

Shine on me
Shine on you
Shine on us

Chased to Death

Written By: Butterspy

CHASED TO DEATH

My life didn’t go exactly like I planned
I’m at the mercy of my own two hands
Take a look around see I found my way here

Man on a mission going ‘round like a wheel in my head
Over and over and over until I’m dead
Take a look around see I’ve found my way here

I don’t need no explanation
I’m done with expectation
For all the things that I’ve chased to death
It won’t be much longer now

One down
Two down
Three down
Four down

I don’t need no explanation
I’m done with expectation
For all the things that I’ve chased to death
It won’t be much longer now

Spread This

Written By: Butterspy

SPREAD THIS
Pump the stereo
Ah here we go
On the merry go round
We got the funk beats
We’re from 6th street
We got the Butterspy sound
I got the roof down
I got my foot down
I got the radio switched on
We like to go ‘round
With our own sound
We like to turn you on
Feel the music
The music’s just right
And it all seems good to me
We got a sound that is new-fi
A new fidelity high from Butterspy
Is all you need
(chorus)
We’re here to rock you
We’re here to fly
Having a good time
Butterspy… spread this

Jump to light speed
We are the new breed
We like to get you down
Get your move on
Get your groove on
Move that thing around
We’re half a butterfly
Half a spider
We see the beauty in you
You can’t hide her
See the world of superconscious
If you don’t like that
Then don’t watch us
Feel the music
The music’s just right
And it all feels good to me
We got a sound that is new-fi
A new fidelity high from Butterspy
Is all you need
(repeat chorus)

I’ve got the whole world In my hands
Show me something in the neighborhood
Show me something that feels this good

Butterspy-ya up beside ya
What rhymes with that? Oh Malija!
Is it real what you see
What you see does it feel
Does it feel real?
Then Spread This…
