We were delighted that local band Violet played a live set for us to mark the end of our exhibition – 45 RPM Furr & Mankowitz. The band played in front of our huge wall of Marianne Faithfull images.
A number of the pieces in the 45 RPM exhibition are actually violet (with titles like Electric Violet, Absinthe Violet and Madder Violet) so it had to be fate that some of the band members walked in on the first day of the show – when the idea of a live set to close it out was born.
Violet come drenched in big sounds with an indie spark, combining influences that draw from 90s Grunge to Britpop – creating a unique ethereal, yet captivating sound. Their singles “Feel” and “Jaded” are out – and on Spotify.
Here’s the band playing “Jaded” in the gallery:
