Blink and you’ll miss it: ‘Descend’ is 99 seconds of 80s Lene Lovich vocals and fragmented, urgent post-punk rhythms, punctuated by screeds of distorted noise as a guitar thrown to the floor echoes the tortured industrial screams of Einstürzende Neubauten. Breathtaking! ‘Carnival’ is twice as long and a little more sane, with an echoey, haunted sound for a gothic Siouxsie and the Banshees adventure. Listen and you’ll be blown away by the uncompromising, unhinged but defiantly pop music of the Violets.
