Violens makes SPIN's "The Best 20 Songs of 2008"

Press Blurb: 

"In 1966, this alternately ominous and sparkly nugget would've been the No. 50 British single of the year, after the Creation's "Making Time." It's that good."

The L Magazine features Violens in "8 NYC Bands You Need to Hear" issue

Press Blurb: 

"Young bands will be jealous of their meteoric rise through the ranks, but when a band this good, with so much direction and potential, gets all the breaks they deserve, we find it pretty difficult to complain."

Pitchfork Media

Press Blurb: 

"Violens...may be less than a year old, but they are already the best discovery of this collection. Their stoned, sweet "Trance Like Turn" features sunny, vintage harmonies that peek through the gray clouds of their steely, post-punk beats and synthesized aggression."

Time Out covers Violens Live in NYC

Press Blurb: 

"Most bands will never write a song so flawless as Violens' "Violent Sensation Descends." ... Your ears are broken if you don't play it several times over before you can do anything else...Violens clearly draws from the mid-'80s U.K. indie scene (Aztec Camera, the Pale Fountains, Prefab Sprout) but doesn't sound derivative of anyone; the group's evocation of that era's internationalist style and wit comes wrapped in a cool emotionalism that also characterizes Violens' onstage vibe. The only issue with their shows is that we can't get them to play a song more than once."
