Violentene – Phantom Youth (Official Video)
Raymix, Paulina Rubio – Tú Y Yo
Order “Phantom Youth” EP here: violentene.bandcamp.com
Melting dark 80s synthwave, shoegaze and ethereal vibes seamlessly under Dani Mari’s glittery vocals, Violentene gives you its new ode to innocence lost.
Roland brings an early 80s synth and new wave influence from Japan, Gary Numan, and Cocteau Twins and the guitar shimmer of Johnny Marr and Robert Smith to the mix, while Dani Mari wraps her bittersweet vocals around warm, breathy tones.
It’s been a long, deep journey since 2017 and Violentene’s first EP – so many emotions, life challenges, and rethinking / rewriting happened in the interim. A concept album without trying to be one, the vibes are most certainly in line with its title – a yearning for and an ode to innocence lost… and the strength to keep moving ahead.
For fans of Drab Majesty, The Cure, Boy Harsher and Cocteau Twins.
