Most noticeably, the music to Butterfly sustains Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein’s freakish proclivity for locating humanism in their electronics. The signals they send have some sort of uncanny correlation with core feelings. More uncanny is their tonal grasp of what it is to be young and curious. – Charles Steinberg, Under The Radar
Today over at Under The Radar, we get a behind-the-scenes interview of co-composer Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein on their score to “Butterfly”, the critically-acclaimed mini-series now streaming on Hulu. Included in the piece are three songs you ca listen to now, including “Taking In Lodgers”, making its debut on the press outlet: “Quite frankly just makes you wanna pop-lock, the tone is set for Maxine’s personal triumph.” Check out this web exclusive now at Under The Radar!
Tony Marchant’s critically-acclaimed mini-series Butterfly features score by EMMY®-winning and GRAMMY®-nominated Composers Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein (“Stranger Things“, Spheres) and stars Anna Friel (“Marcella“, “Pushing Daisies”), Emmet J. Scanlan and Callum Booth-Ford.
Originally premiering on ITV in the UK, BUTTERFLY is now streaming on Hulu.
The approach that Dixon and Stein take with their work on Butterfly underscores a shift for them: it sounds far different from their Stranger Things work. (Aaron’s Note: If anything, it’s more Cliff Martinez or Johnny Jewel than John Carpenter, but I’ll let them describe the shift.) – Vehlinggo
Premiering today on Vehlinggo is the track, “A Long Way To Go” by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein for the forthcoming Butterfly – Original Series Soundtrack!

For those of us who have followed Marcella, the International EMMY-winning series, then you must know how powerful a role the score plays in the series. Gratefully, Lorne Balfe continues his reign as composer in Series 2. Preview/stream the album below.
If you missed an episode of Marcella, then not to worry. Through the magic of technology, ITV has made the episodes from the current series on ITV Hub (UK access only). And, if you need a refresher, Series 1 is now on Netflix. Expect Series 2 to hit Netflix soon.
