Brooklyn indie/electronic group Violet Sands shares new single “ Hands ” along with album pre-order of their upcoming debut LP Hotel, out June 30th on newly-minted Brooklyn label YouTooCanWoo.
“ Hands ” is an upbeat collage of quirky beats, 90s-pop-influenced vocals and wild leads, reminiscent of some of the more playful sounds of MØ, RL Grime and AlunaGeorge. “It celebrates the grey areas, and how most things in reality are not only black or white,” explains Violet Sands’ frontwoman Deidre Muro. “Understanding that is really important in times like ours. The spectrum is actually very beautiful when you allow yourself to see it.”
To celebrate the Hotel album release, Violet Sands will perform at the YouTooCanWoo Label Launch Party at Rough Trade on June 30th. Headlined by labelmates French Horn Rebellion, the party will feature an amazing series of special guests including Darwin Deez, PROM, LEFTI, Gibbz, Germans, and Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue. Tickets available Fri 5/19 at 12pm EST .
Hotel will be the first full-length release on YouTooCanWoo – a brand new label arm of the members’ long time studio and community in Brooklyn . The trio are part of a crew that works on diverse sound and audio projects, including composing original film and video game scores and producing and mixing artists like MGMT and The Knocks.
Harnessing the alluring vocals of Deidre Muro (Deidre & the Dark, formerly of Savoir Adore), the inventive production of David Perlick-Molinari (French Horn Rebellion) and the atmospheric guitar-scapes of Derek Muro (Love Like Deloreans, Mighty Five), Violet Sands craft genre-bending music, creating a fresh and dreamy mix of nostalgia with the present. Violet Sands stunning video for “ No Matter What ” continues to gain accolades and was recently announced as a 2017 Webby Awards Official Honoree (Music Video Category).
