“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 indie quintet Violet come drenched in big sounds with an indie spark, blending sugary sweet pop melodies with heavier 90’s grunge influences. Pedal immersed guitars combined with intricate drums and powerful basslines intertwine to create a unique ethereal, yet captivating sound.
Violet arrived with their debut single ‘Feel’ in late 2017, which received a feature on Huw Stephen’s Radio 1 show. The track was followed by the singles ‘Jaded’, ‘Heaven Adores You’ and ‘Wilt’, all of which received acclaim from the likes of Clash Magazine, Dork Magazine and more, while being rotated heavily on Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6music show.
Their upcoming EP illustrates a breakthrough and a clear vision in the band’s sound. It’s set to be released on November 22nd. New single ‘Shiver’ showcases Violet at their peak, with walls of reverb-drenched guitars and epic, infectious chorus hooks.
