Glass Violet, a five-piece alternative band based in Bristol, have just released their brand new single Indigo. If you’re tired of the Christmas music inundating your ears at every corner these days and want to dream of a sunny chill day at the beach instead, then by all means put this song on repeat and crank it up because it will transport you to a much happier place.
Indigo is such a fresh and happy song – reminiscent of big stadium anthems by The Killers, for example – and it will make you jump up and down and sing along by the third listen. From the catchy guitar riffs to the atmospheric synths that envelop it and the amazing vocals, this track has a one-way ticket to become a hit. But for me, it the timeless feel of the song that makes it stand out. This wouldn’t have been out of place in the 90’s, noughties or teensies. And it certainly sits well with its contemporaries.
I predict great things for Glass Violet in the new year as they gather more attention from local and national radio stations. A band to keep an eye on, so make sure you follow them on their socials. You don’t want to miss out announcements for gigs and tours, as I for one, don’t want to miss out on hearing Indigo live soon.
