Butterfly House

Album: Butterfly House (2010)
  • This is the title track of English indie rock band The Coral's fifth full-length studio album. For the writing of the record, The Coral disappeared to rented countryside cottages in the middle of nowhere. This was important to the feel of the album, which is about recapturing the idea of records being a secret, magical place to lose yourself in, to create your own world. "The whole kind of concept we had was the death of mystery," said band member Nick Power. "You know, the 'Butterfly House' itself is supposed to be this place that you make up, that the modern world and all the, like, information and technology in it can't touch."
