DISCOVER BIRMINGHAM: VIOLET+ RAI KAH MERCURY + WISHBONE + THE SPACE

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 Clash and Dork while being rotated heavily on Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6music show.

Their upcoming EP illustrates a breakthrough and a clear vision in the bands sound. It’s set to be released on October 18th, 2019, with the first single “Pure Blue” to be released on the 20th September.

“Ebullient energy and rambunctious riffs, the taut rock energy of Violet’s songwriting is matched to some deft pop moments.” – Clash Magazine
