Midlands 5 piece Violet come drenched in big sounds with an indie spark, combining infuences that draw from 90s Grunge to Britpop. Pedal immersed guitars entwined with intricate drums and powerful basslines come together to create a unique ethereal, yet captivating sound. The band are likened to the ambiance of Slowdive, the mystique of The Horrors and the melancholy of Suede.
Following on from their 2017 debut single release ‘Feel’ which received acclaim on Clash and Dork amongst others the band are set to release their follow up single ‘Jaded’ on March 16th out on ‘HolyHowl’ Records.
Luke Brickett Haycock, “Jaded felt special, it was written in a trance like state where it all just kind of blossomed from out of nowhere one night. It’s about that feeling when something, whatever it is, gets ingrained and stuck in your head but you just want it gone and it doesn’t leave”.
