The Violet May have been causing quite a stir since they first landed on the scene late last year with their fresh sound, big attitude and even bigger swagger. They’ve being championed by the likes of Rob Da Bank and Huw Stephens (Radio 1), Steve Lamacq (6music), Jon Hillcock (NME Radio), Eddy Temple Morris (XFM) and Rodney Bingenheimer (K-Roq in L.A.), as well as the Guardian listing them as one of the “Top 15 Acts To Watch in 2010”, Clash Magazine declaring them “sent from the heavens to revive the fading spirit of rock and roll”, and the track “Bright Or Better” even on heavy rotation in Topshop New York.
Meanwhile, The Violet May’s hedonistic live shows have left awestruck punters and battered venues trailing in their wake. Residencies at London’s Death Disco and Sheffield’s Stockroom have been backed up by festival dates at Leeds Festival, Standon Calling, Secret Garden Party this summer, and a very special headline show at London’s KOKO on June 25th for Club NME.
The guys also had a feature on the release in this week’s edition of NME, and have been invited to the BBC 6music studio next Wednesday as Steve Lamacq’s “Favourite New Band”. Tune in from 5pm to hear some chat with Chris and John from the band live on air.
And if you’re still unsure, then hit play below and you can stream one of the tracks, “Bright Or Better”, from the forthcoming double A-side single. A kind of try before you buy ; )
