Have you ever liked someone so much that you literally want to devour them from the head down? Seems unlikely, but that is the way L.A.-based bedroom pop star CRAY is feeling on her moorish new single "Butterflies." "You give me butterflies, please don't let them die, give me your honey eyes" she sings over a wonky lo-fi beat and handclaps. Cannibalism never sounded so romantic.
Speaking about the song via email, CRAY said: "Writing 'Butterflies' was probably the most fun I’ve had in the studio in a long time. I feel like I’ve finally found my sound so it came pretty naturally for this record. I was inspired by those moments when you meet someone you really like or having a feeling of a crush on someone. But of course it’s not a CRAY song without a little weirdness. You ever think someone is so cute you wanna bite their heads off?"
