After taking time away from live shows Old Violet are eager to get back to what they love: playing live and ripping some new tracks.

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!
