Violens Unveil video for new single ‘Violent Sensation Descends’
aaamusic | On 29, Oct 2010
After releasing their acclaimed debut album ‘Amoral’ earlier this month, New York three piece Violens (pronounced ‘vy-lenz’) have unveiled the video for their next single ‘Violent Sensation Descends’.
One of the many highlights on ‘Amoral’, ‘Violent Sensation Descends‘ is due for release on November 22nd through the band’s own imprint Static Recital. A floaty psychedelic moment on the album, it veers from a vertiginous wash of synths into a chorus that could only have been written after overdosing on Zombies records.
The single is backed by an alternate French version, a sublime rendition performed beautifully by lead singer Jorge Elbrecht and Caroline Polachek from Chairlift. It reflects Elbrecht’s nature, his insatiable appetite for writing and experimenting.
Having supported MGMT on their US tour earlier this year, and playing a select number of shows in the UK this September, Violens will join The Drums when they return to the UK:
