Melting dark 80s synthwave, shoegaze and ethereal vibes seamlessly under Dani Mari’s glittery vocals, Violentene gives you its new ode to innocence lost. Roland brings an early 80s synth and new wave influence from Japan, Gary Numan, and Cocteau Twins and the guitar shimmer of Johnny Marr and Robert Smith to the mix, while Dani Mari wraps her bittersweet vocals around warm, breathy tones. Its been a long, deep journey since 2017 and Violentene’s first EP – so many emotions, life challenges, and rethinking / rewriting happened in the interim. A concept album without trying to be one, the vibes are most certainly in line with its title – a yearning for and an ode to innocence lost... and the strength to keep moving ahead. “Phantom Youth" pulls a love of analog synths, 80s noir-wave, ambient shoegaze riffs, and dreamy vocal flourishes into the mix. Rolands guitars, synths, and beats melt under Danis breathy, bittersweet vocals to mesmerizing effect. For fans of Drab Majesty, The Cure, Boy Harsher and Cocteau Twins. credits released August 30, 2019 Roland Marckwort – Guitars, synths, programming+production Dani Mari – vocals Recorded at Digital Zen Studio, 2018 Produced by Roland Marckwort + Dani Mari Mastered by Bryan Lowe at Joao Carvalho Mastering, Toronto Artwork by Stephen Seto
