VIOLET SOCIETY – SINGLE REVIEW

Violet Society – Nonsense 
Violet Society - Nonsense


Release Date: Out Now

So here’s a weird one; I have two step-sons called Joe and Alfie so when I received an email from a brotherly musical duo called Joe and Alfie I half suspected it to be the sound of a Casio being mutilated, some fierce drums and a lot of distorted screaming. In other words, a prank. It turns out that Joe and Alfir Prior are a Mancuncian duo who trade under the name of Violet Society and totally legit, who knew, right? The duo’s new single, ‘Nonsense’, an absolute belter from the word go and the wild-west style drums set the pace for his sub-three minute hurtle. The guitars and strings are dramatic and channel the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Ferocious Dog and Ennio Morricone which is an impressive array for a duo, never mind one so young in years and musical miles. I’m always drawn to siblings or partners in bands as I think it adds a certain energy that you don’t find elsewhere – that energy is working an absolute treat for Violet Society so more, much more, please.
