Butterflies On Strings – What Did John Stuart Mill Say Again ? * Single of the day * release date 1/4/2011

What Did John Stuart Mill Say Again ? is a terrific pop-rock track from London based Butterflies On Strings. Certainly a sound that grows on you, it also has lyrics that bear scrutiny. I'm sure many an essay could be written exploring the line “all we did was build ourselves from imported parts so we could do it cheap”.

Musically there are effectively two choruses, so plenty to sing along to, as well as almost Beach Boy style backing vocals (there's even a reference to riding waves). However this is miles away from a surf song, in fact that's part of its beauty, you can hear influences in individual elements but as a whole it stands alone.
