Violet Night has released another single, (If) You Are the Ocean ( then ) I Would Like To Drown in anticipation of their forthcoming album A N T I H E R O E S which is set to release September 25th. To pre-save the album, please visit: Smarturl.it/ANTIHEROES.
On the new song, vocalist Connor Pohl shares: “‘Ocean’ is a song about diving headfirst off the deep end into a romantic situation you haven’t fully considered the potential outcomes of. Sometimes people get wrapped up in the idea of who they think someone is, or who they want them to be, for better or worse.“
Violet Night doesn’t just play their instruments; they use them as tools to carefully construct emotion. Hailing from Toronto, ON vocalist/guitarist Connor Pohl, keyboardist T.J. Rounthwaite, and drummer Tay Ewart aim to traverse soundscapes as diverse as their province’s landscapes. From the soaring heights of mountains to the tranquil beauty of a forest, the sky’s the limit with this alternative trio’s sound and potential.
Sophomore LP A N T I H E R O E S is ascending skyward on the winds of the first single “freak me up,” originally released August 2019 and a part of the rocking one-two centerpiece that also includes the darker angst of “(if) you are the ocean (then) i would like to drown”. Surrounding those tracks are seven others that show the trio’s ever-increasing mastery of hooks, from the late-night love letter “evergreen” or introspection on why we’re here “stay golden; we’re all the same in the dark,” to the driving rock anthems “wallflower (none of this means anything)” and “hate me.”
