Pixie breezed into our studio a few minutes before her bandmates on Sunday in her Gallagher-esque parka. “I’m half way through cooking a roast dinner,” she said. “So they’d better be on time!” Sure enough, they rocked up right on cue. Ever reliable, and quickly becoming the Art Wednesday house band following two appearances at Nice To Meet You, Violet are creating a lot of natter amongst press and fans alike. They recently did a mini-tour with label-buddies from Luv Luv Luv—Gabriel Bruce and I O Echo—and if the London leg at Scotch was anything to go by, it was a rammed, sweaty success!

Needless to say, we were more than keen to get Violet involved in our sessions to play a version of their track ‘What You Gave To Me’. It’s a version that takes away the reverb and the distractions, and really puts the tune and the musicians under the microscope. The result? It’s a beauty. See for yourself…
