Moontwin spin dark webs between Bulgaria and London - "Don't Worry Bout Me" and "Butterfly"

Don't Worry Bout Me by Moontwin feels like feral porch blues. At times the homespun tones feel as somber as a funeral and even darkly sinister. I wouldn't say that this song reaches the level of the murder ballad genre that has a tradition in western country music and folk but let's just say there is a deep well of something here that lives in the shadows of the heart.

Interestingly this song and many more are born out of a collaboration stretching from Bulgaria to London. The taught storytelling takes shape between two people over 1700 miles apart. Moontwin is singer songwriter Maple Bee (Melanie Garside) and XRaydio founder Zac Kuzmanov. Sharing a common history, these distant old friends shared musical ideas via video via phones. Zac was diagnosed with a degenerative muscular disorder losing the use of his hands but he still finds ways to record, mix and edit their musical and visual creations. However they create their creations are utterly compelling. Don't Worry Bout Me is the follow up single to Butterfly.
