CoCo and the Butterfields perform at ‘London for Guatemala’ benefit

On the 2nd of August Indie-pop band CoCo and the Butterfields (and their band) played at ‘London for Guatemala’, a benefit for Volcano Victims. They were invited by Actor Oscar Isaac (‘Star Wars Force Awakens’, ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’), who happens to be a huge fan of this dynamic duo.

The band, led by Dulcima Showan and Tomas Twyman, said: “We were thrilled to hear that Oscar Isaac and Gaby Moreno enjoyed our music and are honoured to be performing at the London For Guatemala fundraiser.

“The eruption has had such a devastating effect on so many people’s lives we’re humbled that we can play even a small role in helping them rebuild.”

The Fuego volano eruption in June was one of the biggest ever recorded and led to the deaths of more than 150 people in Guatemala.

CoCo and the Butterfields’ new single ‘Monsters’ is set to be released on the 17th of August’, and they are currently prepping for their UK tour this autumn which culminates with a sold out show at the O2 Academy Islington in March.

Despite its name, ‘Monsters’ is a beautiful single about compassion for a loved one. In an age obsessed with physical perfection, Tom’s insightful lyrics enriched by Dulcima’s unique voice offer mesmerising assurance that petty flaws won’t stand in the way of true love; a tender and compassionate assertion that the mental and physical health of the one that you love will always be taken care of. The pair expose the sensitive topic thoughtfully through divine melody shrouded in harmonies and climaxing in a rousing chorus – it is a musical triumph!

Check out their soon-to-be-released single below!
