'Violet' is something quite lovely from Omaha, Nebraska shoegaze outfit See Through Dresses. It's the first single from their upcoming second album, ‘Horse of the Other World’, which is released on June 30 via Tiny Engines - and which sounds like one to wait for.
The shimmering synths and pounding beat that run throughout give backbone to dreamy reverb and Mathew Carroll’s vocal which details lyrical regret of how, “I couldn’t stop you/ I had my chance/ I didn’t know what you had lost/ I couldn’t ask.” There's a pretty awesome end fade out too.
