Little Rock, Feb 19, 2019 (  - Music does not abide by the boundaries of any standardization. For a musician to explore the various traces of music genres and to come out with newer content every day is something of a prodigal accomplishment. Irish duo Finding Butterflies are reconsidering and reincarnating their classic roots of Celtic folk and amalgamating flavors of progressive rock into timeless tracks. Their newly released track ‘Hard Cold Rain’ is a lyrical extravaganza of the poetic entrails of a musician along with the right mix of hybrid musical notations in a sphere of beautifully created arrangement. They incorporate their interludes with compositions on instruments like flute, Irish whistles, mandolin and more. Strumming along the notes of inspiration and melody, ‘Hard Cold Rain’ holds a poise of its own.

Finding Butterflies utilizes that best variation in terms of lyrics and generic themes in the spectrum of music and turn them into personalized features of their own saga. As musicians, their innovation comes from years of experience as performing artists, through lateral relationships with fellow musicians and influences of art. Their songs speak about the global atrocities, the folksy perspective on things and the layers of life in general.

Finding Butterflies band has put forward exemplifying acts of musical pieces that stand as revolutionary stories for the entire world. Some of their other songs like ‘Naming Dead Cats’ and ‘They Will Cry’ form the very basis of how progression in rock can be utilized in making beautiful tracks. They are gradually creating a bigger platform that experiments music in a new light. Follow them on Spotify, YouTube, FacebookInstagram and Twitter to be a part of the bigger picture of music’s scope and potential as one of the most expressive forms of art.

Their inspirations range from various influences and people that they have come across in the course of their lives; all of which come together in an aesthetic blend. The most striking feature of this musical act is their use of instruments.
