Butterfly Boucher
- Butterfly Boucher

This album is a real triumph that shows Boucher really emerging from her cocoon to become a fully-fledged butterfly.

Apr 10th 2012 | Label: MGM
Having more creative control of her music has certainly paid off for Butterfly Boucher on her self-titled third album. More experimental and upbeat than her previous two albums, Boucher's latest output is an adventurous foray into indie-pop/alt rock that showcases her creative ability in its best light. Here, the Adelaide-born multi-instrumentalist shows off her multiple musical skills by playing most instruments on the album including guitar, bass, piano and synths.

Opener, 5678!, written with friend Katie Herzig as a challenge to themselves to write a successful dance track, is an addictively catchy tune with a fun, Addams Family-themed intro that shows Boucher's move into more adventurous sounds is paying off. Not Fooling Around continues the dance beats and None The Wiser is a triumph, stepping into more electro-inspired territory.

The Weather is another punchy hit with a powerful chorus that draws comparisons with fellow Aussie, Washington (looks as well as sound), while more traditional indie-pop tracks with heartfelt lyrics hark back to Boucher's earlier albums. Don't Look Now and Warning Bell are prime examples of her previous Grey's Anatomy-style territory as she cries “Don't look now/ Something in my heart's not right” and “I locked my heart and swallowed the key”.

This album is a real triumph that shows Boucher really emerging from her cocoon to become a fully-fledged butterfly.
