Violet Swells draw influence from the jazz musings of Brian Wilson, while producing an electrifying atmosphere, akin to the wild space rock sounds of Pink Floyd. The haunting sound of a mellotron is infused with raucous fuzz guitars, and bubblegum melodies that create symphonic soundtracks within three minute pop songs.
