No trip to Chengdu would be complete without stopping to converse with local (and international) legends, Proximity Butterfly, who are currently in a fluctuating state of hiatus. Josh and Heather Love were kind enough to sit down with Loreli at the Chengdu Bookworm to discuss how they met, ended up in Chengdu, and have been able to make music in the least corporate way possible - complete with interruptions from their three music-loving children banging away on The Bookworm's drum kit! Sadly, Proximity Butterfly is on hold for right now, but the Loves gave us a heads up on their new project, called Dizzy Love, which will release an EP by the end of October. You can catch them at the Kanding Love Festival on October 23rd or at their debut personal art show at NUART Space in Chengdu on November 11th. Also check out a video of Dizzy Love on QQ or YouTube.
