Premiere: 'Give In' to High Violet and their smooth new single
The Sydney four-piece are making some cracking indie-rock right now.
Channelling the likes of Metric and Best Coast, High Violet are a Sydney-based four-piece relatively fresh on the scene having only recently released their debut single Only Heart in April of this year. But with a polished indie-rock sound, so fresh and so clean guitars and alluring vocals courtesy of frontwoman Emily Smart, there's already plenty to like. This week they follow up that track with new single, Give In, exploring dreamy indie-pop sounds, with driving drums and guitars packing plenty of attitude for a sound that at once harkens back to grunge-pop acts like the abovementioned Metric and The Dandy Warhols. Speaking on the track, Smart said, "We wrote this song collectively as a cathartic release of frustrations. Two themes that remained consistent for us were temptation and addiction to love; something we’re all beset by. Addiction is like quicksand, the more you struggle, the tighter it grips and the less chance you have of breaking free. Sometimes it just feels easier to give in."
To celebrate the release High Violet willl be rock and rolling into Sydney's uber-cool free party Rare Finds #19, joined by Billy Fox and PLTS, on September 17. Until then tuck in below, and keep your eyes out for the song's video clip in the coming weeks.
