Song Review

The Maine - “Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu”
Written by: Miguel

Do you have a big crush but are too nervous to utter a word to them? Well, The Maine has released a new heart-wrenching song, “Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu”, off of their upcoming album “Lovely, Little, Lonely”, that may become of a fan favourite due to its meaningfulness.

Their previously released song, “Bad Behavior", gave us an upbeat vibe while “Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu” is slower which enables it to project the lyrical message about the nervousness of love in a much more significant manner.

Usually choruses are the most powerful parts of the song when it comes to instruments and vocals, but The Maine took the opposite approach and made the chorus quieter and soothing which contrasts the verse’s rhythmic tone. The chorus breaks into a quieter timbre with John O’Callaghan's mesmerizing vocals over a clean guitar track. This causes lyrics to have a more direct impact on you which allows you to reflect on it in a more calming state. The verses still has that upbeat vibe like in “Bad Behavior” to satisfy those who prefers more substance in songs.

The Maine easily earns a 10 out of 10 for “Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu”. We have seen the success in their latest songs and we hope to hear more from their upcoming album, “Lovely, Little, Lonely”, soon. Pre-order the album now and get some tickets for their upcoming world tour over on!
