Neither new nor breaking (when it comes to this song), but definitely in the top of my "wowzies this is really great music" thinkings, Violens' debut album, Amoral, hits all the right buttons. From influencer sounds like The Smiths, The Doors and Velvet Underground up through the more delicate intricacies of modern day melody makers, the New York trio easily slips in with a sure-shot into a be[a]st of the year offering. Here below, you'll find the video for Violent Sensation Descends, which is, in all of it's 2:16 in length...amazing.
While this serves as the bands' current single, a few weeks ago, they shared a rendition with their gal pal, Caroline Polachek, from Chairlift. Dubbed the French Duet Version, this interpretation serves as today's answer to a neat Serge Gainsbourg and Bridgette Bardot (or Jane Birkin if you feel so inclined) coup, and sure, that's an easy as pie association to make. But screw it. Cause it works like a damn charm.
Get infatuated with me below, and buy Amoral here. You will not be sorry.
PS: Remember, this is not the first time that Polachek and Violens rocked my world; the first being their Justin Bieber SGIN, which is in part tongue-in-cheek, and in whole, perfection.
