It’s her first solo Naive EP since her 2017 breakthrough ‘Togetherness’
Violet is returning to her own Naive imprint with a new solo EP ‘Espírito’. It will be released on April 23.
The title track has been released this week, a dancefloor-ready track that uses drums as melodies, painting a wonderfully percussive portrait of an artist ready to return to the club.
