watch/download violens 'der microarc'


Brooklyn trio Violens will release their second proper LP, True, May 15th on Slumberland. I’m already a complete fanboy of their angular, artful jangle pop, and the latest cut from the album does not disappoint.

“Der Microarc” has all the hallmarks of a great Violens tune: Jorge Elbrecht’s effortless vocals, chiming guitar, tight percussion and jolting, atonal moments. The video is a low-budget Dylan knockoff, but watch as the doodles become increasingly dark:

Violens have a handful of spring dates with Lower Dens scheduled, with presumably more on the way. Stay tuned.
