:: INTRODUCTION

The album immediately captivates the listener with the ominous introductory harpsichord notes of I Wanna Fly. Weird electronic basslines, dynamic drumloops and Violet's enchanting vocals create a dark and tempting soundscape. But Violet is not just a talented singer and composer, she also writes lyrics full of angst and depth that illuminate an artist with a multi-faceted style. Her mature outlook is perfectly illustrated in Your House, a powerful pop-ballad about a scorned and depressed woman who breaks into her ex-lover's house. Dark Side starts with Violet's voice multi-layered into a wonderfully creepy pseudo-chant, with crystal-clear piano notes piercing the shadowy arrangement. In a time when the music industry can best be described as 'been-there, done-that', it is clearly evident that Nemo Studios has made a great effort in crafting a pop album for the new millennium, one that continually defies expectations. Adventurous listeners will be delighted by tracks that swing from contemporary rock elements like screeching electric guitars, to influences of trip-hop jazz or neo-industrial pop, to the intimate orchestral string accompaniment of The Fairest Of All Seasons. With a mood that lingers long after the final song has drawn to a close, the album can be divided into four distinct sections illustrated by the different production teams who were involved. Continue to check FPWeb for a more detailed look at the album in the near-future. What is certain, is that soon we will all be invited into Violet's spellbinding world of passion and longing.
