Violet Age

Violet Age


Violet Age plays hazy pop. Or poppy haze. They are generally tagged as a dream-pop/shoegaze/noise-pop band, and while that may indeed be valid - and certainly they grew up worshipping at the altar of Kevin Shields and Spacemen 3 - mostly they're a pop band doing their own thing.


Violet Age is a hazy, druggy, dream-pop / shoegaze-influenced pop band based in Vancouver, Canada.

Winter 2011 saw the release of the band's 3 song "Prescriptions" EP. And in 2012, the band continued to write new songs, meanwhile bringing their sounds to numerous live arenas, including Vancouver's Music Waste Festival.

In 2013, they will release a new 4 song EP (currently being mixed), play lots of gigs (including Sled Island and Music Waste 2013), release remixes, amass a larger arsenal of new gear, and return to the studio to record another batch of songs.

Sounds like: Pop songs featuring duelling guitars set against a wall of narcotic drone, propelled by motorik groove. Or something else entirely...

Influences: Ride, Chromatics, HEALTH, Cocteau Twins, Fennesz, Neu!, The Radio Dept, Violens, My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Grouper, Primal Scream...white noise...
