We've written about Kid Travis a few times now (here and here). Over the last few years he has made a name for himself as a pioneer of RnB flavored electronic pop, with a signature vocal sound that leverages autotune with unique inflection and an impressive talent for hook-filled songwriting. His music is utterly enjoyable and always excellent—as Kid Travis keeps his sound fresh by constantly covering chart-toppers that he enjoys on his YouTube channel for an international and ever-expanding cohort of #GROOVIEGANG fans.
"Butterflies" starts outs as a sparse drum shuffle behind electro-soul vocals, and quickly rounds out the groove with layers of angelic harmony and jazz-flavored guitar nuggets. This ode to forbidden love balances the unfortunate presence of an overprotective father against the magnetism and excitement of that rare physical chemistry that cannot be ignored. Kid Travis once again underscores his creative range with an understated love song that tempers his RnB core against a vein of pure commercial pop confection.
