The Violet Stones are an alternative rock four-piece from the outskirts of Sydney with heart
and passion for all things ‘90s and grunge. Their sound consists of a modest amount of
nostalgic, overdriven guitar tones with a melting pot of fusion esq. bass rifs and damn loud
drums. Frontwoman, Sarah’s voice carries with it a pitch perfect yet aggressive attitude while
bassist, Neil compliments chorus melodies with seamless harmonies.
The Violet Stones’ songwriting while uniquely eclectic carries obvious grunge and nu-metal
influences such as Nirvana, Hole, Incubus, System Of A Down, and Korn. Sarah’s
personalisation of her experiences and her own individual philosophy follow through with
her relatable and haunting lyrics as a concert sound described aptly as a “portal through time
back to mid 90’s Seattle” utterly enthrals the audience of their live show.
Despite releasing their debut studio efort in mid 2019, the band spent the first 3 years of
their collaboration from 2016 gigging across the east coast both regional and metro,
making an established, underground name for themselves. Their debut album consists of a
hearty 44 minutes of sympathetic, assertive stories while the DIY, aggressive production
compliments the true retro throwback vibe that is The Violet Stones.
What 2020 holds for The Violet Stones is a brand new album ‘PIN’ which is scheduled for
release on the 11th December. The band has transcended their usual grunge influenced
alternative rock beginnings and experiments with various elements of heavy metal, blues, roots, and rock n roll. Sarah also explores the intricate details of her life with heart- wrenching storytelling about her past and relatable denouncements of her judgement and objectification faced as a woman, neck-deep in the music industry.
