Violens: Totally True

Violens’ forthcoming album, True, finds the Brooklyn three-piece blasting us with a wash of 90s sonic pop drawn from artists like Pale Saints, Cocteau Twins and McCarthy.

The album’s first single, “Totally True,” celebrates bands like The Chameleons and Martin Newell’s Cleaners From Venus, in its feel. The guitars are clean and jangling, meshing perfectly with the driving bassline. The lovely vocals have an almost 60s feel; their debt to such soft-rock touchstones as The Association and Sagittarius is one of the unique elements of Violens’ sound that sets them well-apart from many of their contemporaries.
