Introducing: in violet
It is with no small amount of excitement that we present in violet, whose debut album ‘Opal’ will be released on 8th July through Cognitive Dissonance Records. The first single from the LP, “We’re All Dying, Says Sylvia” will be available for free download next Friday, May 10th and features an exclusive track not on the album and a fantastic remix by In a Sleeping Mood.
in violet inhabit a musical world that can only be described as post industrial; taking influence from Nine Inch Nails and A Perfect Circle, yet at the same time sounding like neither, they seamlessly blend heavy guitars and delicate, disembodied vocals to produce stark, brutalist soundscapes occasionally leavened by moments of stunning beauty. If this is industrial, it’s the abandoned warehouse that occasionally appears in your dreams, full of shifting shapes and scenes that are almost familiar.
‘Opal’ is a slow-burning yet compelling collection of tracks which sidle quietly into your brain and set up residence; they tangle around each other in amongst your subconscious and take you, not by force, but by sweet-talking stealth.
This collection was written and recorded over the summer of 2011 in London, UK. As previously, the songs feature Tuomas Hakkarainen on drums and was mastered by Kolski for added tape-goodness.
