Act: VIOLET NOX
Who: Experimental electro duo, Dez DeCarlo and Andrew Abrahamson,
from Boston who collaborate frequently with other artists.
New EP: ERIS WAKES
“The album was written during the worldwide pandemic in 2021. It represents the current rebellious transitional unstable times we are in. Eris is the Goddess warrior of discord and chaos, a dwarf planet, the Star Child, the trans-Neptunian object. Her energy flowed freely through Violet Nox during the creation of this album to harness an uninhibited depth of psychic reflections and hidden shadows from which the essence of “Eris Wakes” tunes and harmonizes.”
Turn Up The Volume: Violet Nox compose their spaced-out symphonies in an
electronic universe of their own where ambient music dominates in all its different reverberations. Soothing and meditative (opener Spaceport 5), tripping out (Eris / Bellatrix), spooky (Magnetar), and mind-puzzling (Ghost Star). It all feels utopian and cosmic. Foggy harmonies with Portishead‘s vocalist Beth Gibbons‘ transcended timbre and repetitive eurhythmics echoing German legends Tangerine Dream.
Close encounters of the third kind.
Sonic science-fiction. Stupefying
