Alt Soul artist Aruba Red and VENTS Magazine are teaming up today for the premiere of the stunning video to accompany her EP track ‘Butterfly’.
‘Butterfly’ is drenched with Aruba’s inimitable, soulful and serene style, building up to an uplifting crescendo of beats and ecstatic vibes. The video was recorded at her recent debut headline show at St Pancras Old Church, in early March just before the lockdown. It perfectly captures Aruba’s spellbinding live performance and stage presence, as she sings her healing and uplifting lyrics that bear so much significance for the challenging times we face today.
Aruba Red said “I’m so excited and grateful to share the ‘Butterfly’ video, made all the more special being filmed when it was and shared now during the lockdown. Who knew it would be the last gig for a long time! It feels quite emotional and it was such a special night, the last time I saw so many of my beloved family and friends in person, and the culmination of a lot of hard work and determination. I wrote ‘Butterfly’ to represent my own evolution, coming out of a difficult time, it feels quite poetic that it’s being released during this global shift, as we transform and evolve. The song and the video represent love, self-love, investing in yourself and others, especially the wonderful musicians and creatives I collaborate with. My hope is that ‘Butterfly’ will evoke joy and celebrate the times when we were able to come together to play music and dance. Those days will come again.”
