Nick Raven ‘Butterfly High (But I Fly So High)’

Nick Raven ‘Butterfly High (But I Fly So High)’
Nick Raven’s new single ‘Butterfly High (But I Fly So High)’ is a hazy, psychedelic-tinged fantasia. Is it about a dream, or a journey? Or is it a commentary on the nature of social butterflies?

Raven says it’s up to the listener’s imagination to interpret…but we can recommend that you kick back and soak in the song.

Nick Raven’s name may be new but he already has quite a track record. His high school band Razor Fox won the Manukau leg of the 2010 Smokefree Rockquest, and picked up the Schick Style Award at the national finals that year.

Following this, Raven branched out on his own, touring the North Island, playing bFM’s Freak the Sheep Christmas Special alongside Goodshirt and Julia Deans, releasing a video (‘Kiss Me’) which played on Juice and C4, and winning a recording grant from Zeal West. This resulted in his EP Happy You Hippie Me and his previous single Blind Man.

‘Butterfly High (But I Fly So High)’ brings Raven’s musical passions to the fore - bursting with delay and reverb, uniting the space between folk and psychedelia.
