Lava La Rue releases the highly anticipated Butter-Fly EP. The EP includes singles “Angel” ft. Deb Never and “G.O.Y.D.” and sees production from the likes of Isom Innis (Foster The People) and Vegyn (Frank Ocean). Alongside the release, Lava is also sharing a new video for her song “Magpie”.
Speaking on the EP, Lava states: “The whole project was made in a transitional time where I felt like I had finally found my wings and settled into a place where I was able to practice a lot of the things I believed in. I musically had pushed myself further than I had done before, to capture a dreamy emotion of falling in love, entering my 20s, shrugging off the insecurities you carry through your teens and recognizing the kind of person I want to be in this world.”
“So the word “butterfly” made sense, but I specially split up the word into “butter” and “fly” with the hyphen because both those words by themselves have both ugly and beautiful connotations; the word butter makes me think of grease and excess but also smoothness and taste (smooth like butter), and the word fly makes me think of the insect and its connection to death & excretion but also to literally fly and be liberated. I guess it represents the process to join those words together and be transitional. The hyphen is the growing pain. Then finally it’s the follow up project after “Stitches” ….butterfly stitches, the healing of wounds.”
