White Moth Black Butterfly release second single & video ‘Soma’ taken from the forthcoming new album ‘The Cost Of Dreaming’ out 28th May
Daniel Tompkins “We’re excited for our fans to hear us in new and unexplored territory! SOMA was recorded during the recent restrictions and whilst we were somewhat limited, with the help of our good friends from Dark Fable Media and Oblivion Studios we were able to produce a fitting video for the lead track from our new album”.
He goes on to explain the song’s meaning and the value of perseverance “SOMA highlights the value of time and the sacrifices that we make to be able to follow our dreams. The cost of those sacrifices can be great, but if we believe and are willing to embrace significant change head on then we can fulfil our dreams. “ White Moth Black Butterfly are a contemporary pop project with progressive and experimental music at its heart; created by Daniel Tompkins (TesseracT), it features a team of songwriters & producers based worldwide, all at the height of their own scenes. Collaborating with Tompkins are New-Delhi based Skyharbor songwriter and producer Keshav Dhar; US based producer and string arranger Randy Slaugh who has previously worked with the likes of Devin Townsend, Architects & Periphery, drummer Mac Christensen and the line-up is completed by ethereal vocals of UK singer & lyricist Jordan Turner.
Their newest output, The Cost Of Dreaming, has been self-produced, engineered and recorded over three continents in various studios throughout the last year. This album signals a sonic evolution in the bands’ output while still retaining core elements from previous recordings such as organic string sections and experimental theme linking interludes but also features some exceptional special guests including saxophonist Kenny Fong and The Contortionist’s keyboardist Eric Guenther.
