“Violet Woods is a Byrdsian/Spector affair, it is beautifully produced and full of well crafted pop songs. An impressive debut from Violet Woods and on the strength of this album, a band I hope I am able to check out live soon.

Violet Woods was formed in Cambridge in 2011, stemming from the desire to explore sounds of 60s London psychedelia and Nuggets style compilations. By juxtaposing the 12 string jangle of the Byrds with surf basslines and rolling beats, they impart their own take on this period while bringing it into the present with Stereolab / Broadcast flavoured retro synth vibes and ghostly vocals.
