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 ambiance of Slowdive, the mystique of The Horrors and the intensity of The Brian Jonestown Massacre.

Formed in late 2016 through interconnected lives, Violet have spent the best part of a year writing, recording and honing their sound. Having played a mere handful of gigs the band are yet to bloom, but with music on the way there’s plenty to look out for.

Plus support from YUNG JIMMY’S BIG IDEAS

Yung Jimmy’s Big Ideas is a nationwide music collective, bringing together artists from the psychedelic, space-rock and shoegaze underground.

Started in 2016 and featuring over 20 different members, the collective has included artists from Derby’s Starwheel to Sheffield’s Vultures and Birmingham’s Violet and Gleam to Nottingham’s The Lizards, to name a few.

The shows are heavily improvised with rehearsal workshops organised in the lead up to shows to create the set. It is our belief that the fragility of improvisation releases the best from all performers carrying an atmosphere and on stage energy that is hard to capture from a well regimented and rehearsed setlist.

For fans of: The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Spaceman 3, TOY, Deerhunter and The War On Drugs.
