Mercury's Butterfly / Gossamer

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 Feywer on Bass, Guitar, Vocals and Keyboard. Eventually it included Frankie Cain on Vox and Electric, and together they work as "Gossamer".

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.


Mercury's Butterfly (2017/2018)

The first EP was produced in the winter of 2017/new year of 2018 and published that January via a few limited edition self-release CDs and tapes that were scattered around Orland.

The Ghost Speaks (2018)

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.

The Seventh Day (2018)

The Seventh Day is the third release from the project - just in time for Samhain! This spooky sonic offering has just 4 tracks.

More Soon~


A limited run of t-shirts, badges and stickers are in the works, so stay tuned!
