ebullient energy and rambunctious riffs, the taut rock energy of Violet’s songwriting is matched to some deft pop moments.” – Clash Magazine
“A properly infectious guitar-pop banger that’s influenced by the very best of 90s Britpop and grunge” – Dork Magazine
“Pedal immersed guitars entwined with intricate drums and powerful basslines come together to create a unique ethereal, yet captivating sound.” – Louder Than War
Midlands 5 piece Violet come drenched in big sounds with an indie spark, combining influences 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 ambience of Slowdive, the mystique of The Horrors and the melancholy of Suede.

Following on from their debut singles ‘Feel’ and ‘Jaded’ which received acclaim on Clash and Dork amongst others and was rotated on Steve Lamacq’s 6music show, the band have released their follow up single ‘Heaven Adores You’ out on ‘HolyHowl’ Records.
Luke Brickett Haycock tells us “This song is one we all hold a little closer to our hearts and we spent so long drifting in and out of the studio to make it sound perfectly like it did in our heads. The song is a kind of retrospective view of an entity that you admire that isn’t on this big floating ball we call earth anymore, how they perceived themselves whilst affecting the world around them, and for us that was a message to Elliott Smith.”
