VIOLET NIGHT don’t just play their instruments – they use them as tools to carefully construct emotion. Hailing from Toronto, ON, the band aims to traverse soundscapes as diverse as their province’s landscapes.
New EP daydream drama follows the smash success of sophomore LP A N T I H E R O E S and sees VIOLET NIGHT rising on the waves of singles “Headtrip” and “SAVE ME.” Surrounding these tracks are three others that show the trio’s ever-increasing mastery of hooks, from the emotionally distant title track to the downward spiral of “losing my mind.”
Written during a period where guitarist/vocalist Connor Pohl felt like there was a void between himself and the rest of the world, “losing my mind” is an empowering anthem that offers a reminder – you are not your demons.
Inspired by existentialism, escapism and all they encompass, the EP is riddled with hues of self vs. self. It’s about finding beauty in the darkness and always holding onto the light – a story of self-acceptance and the comfort in those of the same mind.
