A good test for the merits of any song is to wedge it amid dozens of others and if it stops you in your tracks while all the others just form the colourless environmental noise then you’ll know you are onto a winner. ‘Violet’ is one such and is so retro-inclined I wouldn’t have been surprised if it had been written back in the 70’s, had several Fleetwood Mac players and most prominently James Taylor on board during the recording sessions. That’s because it already feels like 2020 has unveiled its first classic, Eric Ronick and Michael Cannova have created something beyond lovely and I just can’t wait until the flowers of spring bloom in its honour.
