"Pink Butterfly," the first single from Shyan Selah's new album, City of Angels, is the perfect representation of music from this unique and dynamic artist. In "Pink Butterfly" Shyan takes the combination of a Nirvana classic, "All Apologies," his own soulful/rock vocal tone, and his clever and witty word play and vivid lyrics to tell a story of attraction, sex, beauty, passion and obsession. "Pink Butterfly" is classic rock and classic hip hop - honest music designed to move not only your body but your imagination. Quite simply, the track is timeless.
