Album at a glance: Violet and the Undercurrents – Waves

Violet And The Undercurrents = Waves

The clear highlight of listening to this record is the smooth, sultry vocals littered throughout. This all female group easily produces dreamy pop songs coated with smooth cello and jazzy backbeats. They’ll remind you of the heyday of the 90s when the folk rock of Ani Difranco and Tori Amos littered FM dials. Their songs like “Set Me Free” have a confident strut and smooth pacing. The jazz club lounge worthy “Not Alone” shows they can pull off a down beats as well but it is clear they shine when the songs have upbeat tension. Lead singer Violet Vonder Haar likes to rush her vocal delivery to keep this tension as her bandmates subtly back her. This album is cool and smooth all the way through; each listen will have you admiring the clean production and supreme vocals.

Key Track: “Set Me Free”
