Violet Skies has put out her first song: How The Mighty
How The Mighty is a Violet Skies’ song with a really interesting sound that mixes orchestral and electronic. You can download it here and listen to this excellent song that “sucks the listener straight in and keeps us there until the song ends.” (Earmilk ).
Violet Skies comes from a small town in South Wales. At 22, her sound balances her love for artists she grew up with such as Joni Mitchell, Sting and Paul Simon, and the soundscapes of James Blake and Massive Attack.
How The Mighty was produced by Axel Kacoutie and has a “strikingly beautiful, and utterly unexpected composition” (The Line Of Best Fit ). It is a small taste for our ears because next early year, Violet will relese an EP and her debut album in spring 2014, out on Monotreme Records.
