The Violet Lights
The Violet Lights
THE VIOLET LIGHTS are a rock duo based in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, California. Recording their debut EP, Sex & Sound, at the legendary Hollywood studio Sunset Sound, they emerged with what is being described as a "Velvet Underground descendant collection of songs more befitting of the 'garage' label than, say, The Strokes" and a sound labeled "a mash-up of Britpop, NYC garage rock and West Coast guitar musings."

Sex & Sound has begun to garner media coverage worldwide, with critics taking notice of the high production standards and fun, radio-friendly quality of the self-produced, self-funded record. Bloggers are designating the five-song effort as "full of muscular guitars and hummable hooks," and deeming the songs "energetic and catchy" while predicting, "Sex & Sound is undoubtedly all they will need to find success." In late 2011, the EP appeared at #12 on the CMJ Radio 200 Adds Chart and remained on the CMJ Radio 200 Chart for several weeks. In support of its upcoming April 2012 release, The Violet Lights embarked on a on extensive two-month North American tour in early 2012, including performances at South by Southwest in March.
