Post-pop powerhouse with regal sophistication.
Violet Skies is an artist that, in dropping her new single Jealousy, may have just formed her own subgenre in what can only be described as post-pop.
It’s a fine blend and balance of sophisticated pop beats and apocalyptic bass rumbles with ambient synth key strokes. Yet atop this all, tying together the two contrasting sounds, is a vocal that is at times stunningly beautiful and clean, and at other times distorted and warped in a way that sounds like the grim harbinger of the end of the days. The two tangle and dance atop the chaotic sounds of the genre of pop being born in the background, intertwining to make one of the most fascinating pop tracks you’ll hear this week.
