Amoeba Review

Brad Schelden, Hollywood 12/07/2012

This is not the Violens that you might remember from a couple of years ago. It is the same band but just with a different sound. They found a new home at Slumberland and a new sound as well. Their first album had big pop anthems in the spirit of The Killers or Bravery. But they are now jangly and in the style of dream pop. These guys are from New York, but clearly wish they were from England. They also clearly wish it was the early '90s and they were opening for The Pale Saints and Chapterhouse. It will be interesting to see what these guys come up with next. I like them more as what they have now become. It is a great little album.

A Brooklyn three-piece whose music eludes classification, expertly blending percussive guitar work and silky harmonies, seeking the silver lining yet to be discovered between the sounds we know and love. Violens paint soft watercolor notes across their compositions, adding crucial emotional depth via layered vocal harmonies.
