"butterfly 9"

A reissue of Suzy Connolly and Matt Fell's debut album is a good excuse to discover this pretty album. You'll spend the weekend uncovering shimmering pop music that has strong echoes of Aimee Mann and Matthew Sweet. Songs such as Goodbye For Now and Give It Up are bright and charming, but even better are Monday and Heavier Than Stone, in which Connolly's melancholy voice strikes evocative moods - bernard zuel - sydney herald

"The Music Network Album Review"

Album & Single Review (10/31/05)
"Sydney duo butterfly9 have already seen an exciting response to their own brand of sugar sweet pop, with Counting Crows handpicking them as supports, exposure on various teen-market TV shows and burgeoning radio airplay. The Pair have been holed up for the last year recording a huge collection of songs from which they've picked their best to appear on their second album, One For the Birds. The first single is the upbeat and deliciously catchy, I Love The Summertime. A pervading sense of freedom and summer sunshine echoes through this track, with a cruising beat, relaxed rock guitars and Suzy Connolly's voice smooth and seamless. A charming pop track that programmers at Alternative and CHR will find hard to resist!" - The Music Network (Australia)

"Sydney Morning Herald Review"

CD Review 5th November 2005Making good mainstream pop music is a bugger of a job. I don't mean esoteric stuff for music critics, nor do I mean chart Spakfilla. I mean the kind of song that can win you over on the radio today, be remembered tomorrow and still mean something to you next week.

The Sydney duo Butterfly 9, Suzy Connolly and Matt Fell, make music that is unashamedly attractive: you can sing it almost immediately; Connolly's voice is buttery and warm; everything sounds fresh and inviting with layers of perfectly pitched backing vocals, crystal clear guitars and lovely little sounds dipping in and out. When the mood is up (I Love The Summertime) you could fair skip along; when the mood deepens (Dorothy) you can almost hear the sigh, and when things turn more complex (Fading Out, Someday When You're Gone, and particularly the utterly gorgeous Lay Your Head Down) you are invited to think and feel.

Best of all though, it sounds just as good, if not better, the fifth or 10th time around. Not odd, not quirky, not throwaway, just very, very good. - Bernard Zuel, Sydney Morning Herald

"Daily Telegraph Album Review"

Butterfly 9 – one for the birds
Simon Ferguson, Daily Telegraph 3/11/05
The sweet and musical pertnership of Sydney lovebirds Suzy Connolly and Matt Fell is going great on the evidence of this, their second release following last year’s self-titled debut. “I’m going strong, I’m still on top of things,” she sings on I Love the Summertime, which has hit writtne all over it. “We move through the melody, you keep me in time,” she sings on Lay Your Head Down, as her fella Fell harmonises in the background.
It’s romantic crooning to swoon by.
Cute couple, cute album. - Daily Telegraph

When classic pop songwriting, beautiful vocals and scintillating production combine, the magical result is butterfly 9. The Sydney duo of Suzy Connolly and Matt Fell revitalize and reassure with their beautifully crafted music, not afraid to keep it real as they unconditionally sing their way into our hearts.

In their short career to date, butterfly 9 have signed with Mushroom Music Publishing worldwide, achieved widespread Australian radio-play and been hand-picked by the Counting Crows as support for their 2003 Australian national tour.

Their first single ‘another perfect day’ featured on Aaron Spelling’s TV sensation ‘summerland’ while back home in Australia their songs have repeatedly graced hit shows ‘home and away’, ‘the secret life of us’ and ‘crash burn’.

With their second album ‘one for the birds’ ready for Australian release in October ’05, butterfly 9 will spend several months in the US and Europe on promotional tour.

“Music fans know the delicious pleasure that comes from discovering a new act….This Sydney duo are a major discovery.”
Kathy McCabe, Daily Telegraph.
