Violet Run
Trouver la Mort

Violet Run = The Cure + The Shroud + Love Spirals Downward


Violet Run skirts the fine line between sorrowful sincerity and fancy-pants whininess dangerously, but for the most part, are able to stick to the realm of the earnest. They’re a bit over the top, but it’s hard not to be when attempting the hot-juice tactic of mirroring the moods of a black heart sonically. Somber lyrics and vocals build and fall in tempo and intensity with elaborate guitarwork and gorgeous, heartfelt drumming. Sad is the new happy, apparently. www.violet-run.com
