Violens – Violent Sensation Descends

Between this and those NZ lads Cut Off Your Hands powerpop could well be about to make a late surge into our favourite songs of 2008 and this was a year when the Shins didn’t even put out a record. ‘Violent Sensation Descends’ is immaculate, pristine melodies abound, quirky organs drift in the background and wholesome harmonies fill the sweetened air. The Zombies are liberally quoted as these New Yorkers primary influence but since I know little or nothing about that 60’s act I’ll have to go on their word. Makes me wonder how I’ve missed that particular boat but sailing in the glorious technicolour yacht steered by Violens seems like the most joyous experience imaginable so it hardly matters. And at just over 2 minutes long you’d be left with a very runny egg. KD
