Violens announce details of debut album ‘Amora’
aaamusic | On 13, Sep 2010
As some of you may already be aware, the band have spent the summer releasing a series of mixtapes and downloads through their official site and Myspace page. Their most recent featured remixes of songs by Delorean and Nite Jewel and unique mash ups and collaborations with Washed Out and Caroline Polachek (Chairlift) and many more.
Also included was a remix of the ‘Amoral’ track ‘Another Strike Restrained’ by Sadguitarius (Ben Goldwasser of MGMT). This is the first solo remix from Ben Goldwasser and is still available as a free mp3 from www.violens.net.
This has all culminated in the release of an awesome cover of the Marine Girls track ‘He Got The Girl’ which fans can stream/ download for free from the Soundcloud page now:
