Ian Roland & The Subtown Set are songwriter and guitarist, Ian Roland, joined by Simon Yapp, on violin and Jade Woodhouse, on cello. They are a #FolkPop #SoulFolk group with a nod to the classical and an embrace of three-part harmonies.

New album ‘Double Rainbow’ is made up of 11 tracks engineered by Séadna McPhail, mastered by Alan Lowles at Airtight Studios, Manchester. Initial recordings were made at Simon Yapp’s studio, Subtown Studios, in Brighton a fact that owes itself to origin of the band’s name: Ian Roland & The Subtown Set. Acclaimed producer Nigel Stonier (Thea Gilmore, The Waterboys, Joan Baez, Martha Wainwright, Fairport Convention) also offered his golden touch on a number of tracks set to feature on the release, following his commendable work on the band’s two previous EPs, ‘Day Became You’ (2017) and ‘The Valley’ (2018).

With their debut album ‘Double Rainbow’ arriving on 28th February 2020, Sussex folk trio – IAN ROLAND & THE SUBTOWN SET today release the latest single to be taken from it: ‘Butterfly’.

As elegant in sound and fluttering in melody as the creature of its inspiration, ‘Butterfly’ finds the outfit spreading their wings with this intricate and soul-warming modern-folk composition.

The new single is accompanied by a fittingly beautiful video, filmed by videographer and friend of the band: Josh Lewis. Shot at the South Downs National Park near the band’s hometown of Brighton, the video finds the band performing on a hilltop against the park’s breathtaking landscape
