The title means ‘spring’ – that day when all the butterflies burst into life. A new beginning. As songwriter\, singer and guitarist David Tattersall ex plains: “There is always a strong sense of time and place in The Wave Pi ctures’ songs. It soon became natural to group the songs that I was writ ing by season. The album has 4 sides: one for each season. The songs ‘ta ke place’ lyrically within that season. The album begins in Summer and e nds in Spring\, to represent the cycle of life.”\n\n[embedyt] https://ww[/embedyt]\n\nIndie legends Guided By Voi ces snippet pop song mania\, in particular\, showed how The Wave Pictures could take their classic influences and allow them to harness the power of pop more than ever before.
