Violet is Boy In Static’s follow up to the 2005 Alien Transistor release, Newborn. While Newborn was a collection of songs meant to conjure images of a half-waking dream, the music on Violet invokes a feeling of the morning after. Violet is developed using a broad palette, with more than fifteen instruments being played directly by the artist. Boy In Static is in perfect stride with his bedroom-electro-ballad aesthetic, building on his fuzzy brand of hushed dream-pop with a timely maturity. Striking a balance between organic song structure and intricate computer-based processing, Boy In Static’s lush vocals and mature songwriting distinguish Violet from a sea of other indie-electronic releases.
