New Music Friday Chapter 38

Nov 13, 2020

By Melissa Rodwell

Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum – a trio comprised of  Michael C. Hall, Peter Yanowitz, and Matt Katz-Bohen – are gearing up to release their debut album in early 2021, which follows their 2020 self-titled EP, and they will launch the official video for the first single, “Eat An Eraser,” on 11/11. The track features a timely message that likens an eraser to a memory-wiping device and speaks to the anxiety surrounding the forecasted apocalypse. While waiting on our imagined future, we tripped into the now.  A feeling and visual that I think we can all relate to at this strange and difficult time.

Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum is a trio comprised of vocalist, lyricist, musician, and Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award-winning and Emmy-nominated actor Michael C. Hall (Dexter, Six Feet Under, Hedwig and the Angry Inch), keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen (Blondie) and drummer Peter Yanowitz (The Wallflowers, Morningwood). A theatrical sensibility is part of the trio’s DNA, especially in live shows, having met several years ago on Broadway during the production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. The band eschews traditional rock instrumentation in favor of stripped-down synthesizer-and-drum attack, and their self-titled EP drew praise from Paper, Alternative Press, Associated Press, Consequence of Sound, People, American Songwriter, Magnet, and more. A wealth of disparate influences flow into Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum’s songs – the glam, experimental, ambient music of David Bowie, Giorgio Moroder’s ‘70s disco productions for Donna Summer, ‘80s new wave dance music, contemporary electronic dance acts like Justice, and the roster of France’s Ed Banger label.
