Love is perhaps the most unexplainable, yet undeniable gift of life. It’s intangible, but as strong as a gust of wind; and as fleeting as the sunlight. As humans with the capacity to love hard and fast, we can get caught up in the drama of it all. We often forget just how fun it is to have a crush, or how exhilarating it is to finally talk to them. The highs and lows of it all will continue to draw us in, and we will always find ourselves in awe of love’s unpredictable grace.
For Shawn Chasten, the whirlwind of emotion love brings leads him to the studio. His latest single Butterfly was inspired by a love-at-first-sight encounter at a yoga class with a girl sporting a butterfly tat. Smooth and upbeat, Butterfly explores the euphoria of locking eyes with someone special. A flirty guitar is woven throughout, and Shawn’s voice glides above it all with ease and confidence. Not only is it catchy, but the track radiates a warm and inviting happiness that is so infectious.
As Shawn Chasten navigates exploring new and exciting genres, he too navigates love’s vast wild with Butterfly. It’s with musical feats like this that we’re reminded how light-hearted and open love really is, and how much can be found in its tiniest moments.
