Before he continues his “Dexter” obligations, Michael C. Lobby is offering a relief from the dangers of summer 2021 with a brilliantly threatening music video.
The seven-time Emmy candidate is the frontman of a trial musical crew, Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum, which delivered its presentation collection, “Much obliged for Coming,” in February. On Wednesday, the band revealed a music video for “All things considered,” its most recent single.
Coordinated by Dylan Greenberg, the clasp tracks down Hall’s bodiless head pursuing bandmates Matt Katz-Bohen and Peter Yanowitz through a neon-shaded, part of the way enlivened maze. Simply put, it’s a synth-pop sentimentality trip that winks at MTV time hits like a-ha’s “Take on Me” and Dire Straits’ “Cash to no end.”

The beginnings of Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum can be followed back to Hall’s melodic theater roots. In 2014, he got back to Broadway in the hit musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” and fortified with Katz-Bohen and Yanowitz, two of the show’s artists.
It ends up, Hall’s new companions had some genuine stone cred on their list of qualifications, too. Yanowitz is an establishing individual from The Wallflowers and Morningwood, while Katz-Bohen has played with Blondie and Cyndi Lauper, among other artists. Before long, the three men started composing and performing music together, and in 2020, uncovered a self-named debut EP.
“A many individuals say, ‘Goodness, amazing, that is not what I was expecting by any means’ when they see us interestingly,” Hall told HuffPost in February. “I consistently accept that as a commendation. As a group of people part, you generally need to be astounded musically or specifically or whatever.
The arrival of the “Nevertheless” video comes at a productive time for Hall. He ventures once again into the job of blood splatter investigator turned chronic executioner Dexter Morgan on the long awaited recovery of “Dexter,” due out on Showtime in November.
On Oct. 30, Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum intends to get back to New York’s Mercury Lounge for its initially live execution since show settings shut in March 2020. A 16-date European visit is set to start off Nov. 27 in England, with extra stops in Ireland, Ukraine, and Germany.
However, the band is appreciative for the applause that “Thanks for Coming” has up to this point accepted, its individuals say they are now grinding away on new music.
“There’s not a great deal for performers to do right now other than be in the studio,” Yanowitz told HuffPost. “This collection was the one thing that kept us normal ― simply remaining innovative and drew in was one of the silver linings in a bizarre, messed up year.”
