Mercury's Butterfly is probably the only darkwave/gothic project in Orland, CA. Hardly anyone in the area knows about this sort of music so it's all very underground. As of its inception the lineup consisted of Ean Martin on Bass, Guitar, Vocals and Keyboard.
Featured on a few
Sacramento college radio stations and “Sound In The Distance”, the EP garnered
attention via word of mouth and the included insert, and the project continued
to develop. Currently there are more productions in the works, so here are all the currently available releases and information to date:
The second release contains more of a darkwave sound, also by self-release. This album was never officially "released", e.g. not available for listening but does exist in the underground in cassette tape runs, handed out at shows.
No link just yet, but a few songs are available for listening on Soundcloud:
“Escape" is an ethereal wave/shoegaze-style album with a focus on heavy guitar distortion and effect-filters, groovy percussion and drum ’n’ bass rhythms, smashing progressions and some vocals. Let the dark and groovy ethereal rhythms immerse you into an Escape.
