Powered by Audioscrobbler™Tasty, barbed musical morsels snatched from the fingers, mouths and hearts of PJ Harvey, Sleater-Kinney and Huggy Bear, heavily seasoned with violet violet’s own arty brand of vibrant wit and wisdom. This is gossip rock. It’s edgy, full-on bitching, harmoniously delivered by a feisty trio of sardonic sirens. Tumbling tunes stuffed full of perfect and primal tribal rhythms with buzzsaw bass, gyrating guitars and a dual-pronged lead vocal attack that’s guaranteed to get you singing and bopping along to their infectious DIY dancefloor ditties.
Tune in, take note and listen to their woah-a-oh! You’ll be unable to resist the violet violet range of sound: from infectious disco beats to hard screaming riot grrrl noisiness, each skit telling tales of bad dress sense, nasty nights out and crushing one-liners.
Indeed, their quirky approach has charmed Brummie punk legends/rock mavericks The Nightingales, who took the girls under their wings for some UK shows in October 06 and will do so again this summer. Further national endorsement has come from airplay on Radio 1 and 6 Music, plus a coveted slot in the NME: surely, with such support already under their well-accessorised belts, these leading ladies of the Norwich music scene are dressed for success. As their image includes a fondness for facial hair, you’d be wise to snip out your own violet violet-styled moustache from your CD cover and become part of the bitchbox, gossip rock, boy/grrrl revolution now.
