VIOLET+ PHIL MADELEY + MYLES NEWMAN + SOUKI

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

Combining a distinctive fusion of originality and homage, 22-year-old Phil Madeley’s music is born of equal parts disdain and anger for the current state of play. Wrapped up in his laid-back, Neil Young meets Jamie T, grit-edged soft rock, are the pressing and serious issues of present-day alienation, loneliness and mistrust. With the ability to carry a refined maturity, as well as charming throwaway youthful aphorisms, his voice serves as the perfect vehicle for such reflections. Resulting in songs that want to offer as much refuge as they do commentary.

Having cut his teeth as a solo performer, Madeley has crafted a commanding live act that is captivating and exciting, drawing comparisons with Jarvis Cocker and Mick Jagger. Performances at 2019’s Dot to Dot Festival and headlines at The Waiting Room and The Sunflower Lounge (amongst a range of supports) have lead to live shows defined by clout and purpose.

After basing himself in South London, early demos recorded on his Tascam four-track tape machine served to document the growing maturity and control in his voice and his songwriting. Off the back of recording sessions at RAK studios in London, his long-awaited debut single ‘21st Century Witch-Hunt’ was released Tuesday 4th June through Temple Music.
