Blue Helix has released a new music video today entitled “Anti-Social Butterfly,” the title track from the band’s new EP. The song is an unrepentant, powerful denunciation of bullying and has, along with the rest of the EP, received heavy airplay on Sao Paulo, Brazil’s primary Rock Radio station 89.1 FM. The video made its worldwide debut on the Huffington Post.
Hailing from Puyallup, Washington and Sao Paulo, Brazil, Blue Helix is made up of Sami Chohfi on vocals; Arman Birang on guitar; Brandon Wolf Gebhardt on bass; and Marco Bicca on drums. The band’s sound combines elements of hard rock, alternative rock, melodic rock, acoustic rock and grunge.
The video places a heavy emphasis on and bringing a strong awareness to the emotional and psychological abuse associated with bullying. The video tells the tale of a young boy who is bullied in and outside of school. Throughout the young boy’s trials and tribulations, he re-invents himself physically and mentally, metamorphosing into a muscular proactive young man. At the end of the video, the young man faces his longtime adversary and beats him in a boxing match, regaining his dignity and self-esteem.
The video for “Anti-Social Butterfly” is excellent and compliments the story that the band is trying to convey. Chohfi puts his energy and soul into singing the lyrics and is full of passion, emotion and energy.

Word to the wise. Follow our pal Andrew Joslyn and the Passenger String Quartet's Instagram page @andrewjoslynmusic.
He's giving sneak previews of his symphonic work on network TV commercials and pop songs. Every student of violin and cello should be following his page. But so should you. You have heard Andrew and his writing on Grammy winning hits by Macklemore and Kesha.
...and his work with folks like Ethan Anderson to save the music industry locally and globally with the Recording Academy / GRAMMYs is something to watch.
Or don't follow him and life will be a little less colorful and inspiring, but sometimes you don't notice how good life can be without good art and good friends.
In that respect Art is dangerous because you will need more. Andrew has plenty in the vault... ... See MoreSee Less
