Koven’s ‘Butterfly Effect’ LP is ready to drop!
Finally, after months and months of teasing, Koven’s debut album ‘Butterfly Effect’ is finally ready to drop! This has been marked as one of the most crucial albums of this year. When you listen to it, track by track, it’s easy to understand why. With fourteen huge tracks to choose from, each one offers the sound which has been created by Koven from the beginning, despite being presented through different tempos and exploring the full versatility of their production. Whilst Max fronts the engineering, Katie has continually stunned us with her vocals, energy and explosive DJ performances…captivating audiences across the world!
With a few singles already released to get us hyped for the full album, there’s been a host of music that fans, both old and new, have been introduced to. Records like ‘Yes’, ‘Followers’, ‘All for Nothing’, ‘Shut My Mouth’, ‘Give You Up’, ‘Your Pain’ and ‘Gold’ have taken you through the motions of ‘Butterfly Effect’ with its unrestricted diversity. Koven have shown the standards which they’ve stuck to throughout its process since its first reveal earlier in 2019.
The vast expanse of sublime new music highlights that Koven’s work rate is second to none. With the cinematic drum & bass flavours of ‘Worlds Collide’ introducing ‘Butterfly Effect’, it’s a precursor of what’s to come, quickly followed by the album’s soaring title-track. The James Bond inspired ‘Speaking Through Smoke Detectors’ takes you through a movie soundtrack soundscape whilst the emotive current of ‘For Me’ delivers a different twist to their usual bass-heavy undercurrents, alongside the switched up tempo of our premiere ‘Stars’.
Katie’s incredible voice rings through tracks like ‘Missing’ and you’re made aware of her remarkable artistry from start to finish. Meanwhile, the sweeping layers of ‘Surely You Know’, draw the album to a close. ‘Butterfly Effect’ isn’t just an album of tracks; it’s a journey through the hearts and minds of Koven.
This album is everything we expected and a whole lot more. It takes you on a real rollercoaster ride of emotions and sums up exactly what it means to deliver music with soul. We recommend you get this on LOUD as Koven would expect you to do!
‘Butterfly Effect’ drops via Monstercat on 13th March. Check out our premiere of ‘Stars’ below and grab the absolutely brilliant album from here
