THE VIOLET STONES DELIVER POWERFUL SECOND SINGLE ‘SHARK’
Seemingly spirited away straight from Seattle, Sydney’s grungiest alternative rockers, The Violet Stones, serve out the vicious and unpredictable ‘Shark’ single ahead of their well-awaited sophomore album release.
The iconic DIY nature of the recording of this song is accentuated by chaotic production and assertive drum grooves, with Sarah’s voice well accustomed to soaring over the ‘90s influenced guitar riffs.
For the first taste of their new album, The Violet Stones previous single ‘Kill Me’ features vivid experimentation of structural textures, similar to that of ‘Shark’, that awarded them a humble 7/10 on Hysteria Mag and much anticipated attention for their newest record.
ABOUT THE VIOLET STONES
With soaring melodies, crashing cymbals and a true homage to the 90’s and retro rock The Violet Stones bring an aggressive, grungy accent to the underground of Australia. From a hasty start in Sydney in 2016 and citing influences from Nirvana, Hole, Incubus, System Of A Down, and Korn, The Violet Stones have been cementing themselves as an innovative energy to behold.
“They really aren’t afraid to experiment—Kill Me unapologetically and relentlessly dishes up their sound to the world.” - Ciara Allen, Hysteria Mag, June 2 2020
“Sydney’s The Violet Stones have been steadily honing their sound since their 2016 formation. On new single Kill Me, they channel the darker side of retro alt-rock.” Happy Mag, May 29 2020
