Special offers and product promotions
Vanessa Upson, who performs as Violetness, got Peruvian blood and was a classically trained pianist before she moved towards a more avant-garde tribal pop sound, building each theme through vocal exploration and an ethereality that reaches epic points. The thing that sets Violetness apart from other female songwriters is her impacting and staggering voice. Her vocals pop, shimmer, bamboozle, and tap every raw emotional instinct. "Last Night in My Dreams, I Was Talking to You" draws on traditions of tribal music to come up with a sound that sometimes evokes the work of other mysticism-infused female artists such as Prince Rama, Björk, Bat for Lashes or also Florence + the Machine. It's a finely arranged experimental pop EP, that has ancestral roots but is attached in contemporary. There is yet another magical side in this release, which is conferred by three masterful remixes of Sun Glitters, Slow Magic and Robot Koch.
