Newly formed Sydney-based indie-pop outfit, High Violet, have just unveiled their debut single ‘Only Heart’.
On their first offering, High Violet have combined infectious indie-pop hooks and vocal melodies likened to The Preatures, HAIM and Fleetwood Mac.
The four-piece started jamming in Sydney throughout 2015 exploring a songwriting process, which resulted in a collection of songs including ‘Only Heart’, all recorded with engineer / producer, Louis Schoorl (Daniel Johns, Kimbra, Bertie Blackman).
Front-woman, Emily Smart, described the creative and writing process as –
“Really organic, collaborative and exploratory... The four of us just set up permanently in Dan's lounge room for six months, and jammed out whatever ideas came to us, whilst bonding on our love of red wine. We pieced together a massive collection of songs from these jams and from there began to fine tune our sound“
