With influences that consist of artists such as Something For Kate, Bon Iver, Kings of leon, City and Colour, Mutemath and even Foals... It's no surprise that the sounds that we have come to produce is one of Alternate Rock with hints of Indie Folk sound. 2013 will see Old Violet play at as many venues in different towns as possible to gain the experience and reputation that comes with being a great live band.

This song will d...

This song will definately be the lead single for these guys! Such a magestic song, that isn't rushed into any repetitive loops/chorus', but instead each verse builds progressively into something quite catchy. Extremely intriguing lyrics and a great hook "take it in, take her in....." coupled with angelic acoustic picking make it an all-round aural pleasure. Get around it!
