Check ‘Em Out: Violet Sands


Brooklyn-based indie electronic trio Violet Sands and have announced their debut EP Strange Attractor set for release on May 6th via Ensemble Records. Comprised of David Perlick-Molinari (French Horn Rebellion), Deidre Muro (Savoir Adore, Deidre & The Dark), and Derek Muro (Love Like Deloreans), the band shares new single “Coming Back” today. Rolling beats swirl with atmospheric guitar-scapes to accompany Deidre Muro’s alluring vocals. She comments:

The song is a journey of reconnecting with inner truth, to acknowledge that you have been negligent of some part of yourself, and that you’re open to returning to the child-like state of the whole.

Strange Attractor crafts a shimmering, expansive, and experimental hybrid that is as playfully lush as it is masterfully produced. Recorded and mixed at the band’s YouTooCanWoo Studios in Williamsburg Brooklyn (where Perlick-Molinari also produced and mixed MGMT’s Time To Pretend EP among many others) the trio blends myriad influences including 90’s R&B, shoegaze, glitch pop and future bass with sci-fi infused cinematic soundscapes and trip-hop inspired dreamstates.


Violet Sands formed around a common interest in creating soundtracks for self-discovery and rites of passage, invigorated by a desire to evoke the beauty and struggles of transitioning from one phase of life to another. They shared breakout tracks “No Matter What” and “Lift Me Up” in January 2016 featuring Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue, aka Eric “Doc” Mendelsohn of Ghost Beach.  The band quickly garnered critical acclaim and developed a strong Soundcloud presence + saw “No Matter What” featured on the Spotify Party Campaign.

With a big year shaping up in 2016, stay tuned for more from Violet Sands.
