Violet has released her third album, titled 'Transparências', which takes listeners through her various influences from jazz, to downtempo, to jungle and beyond.
The album, which is based on the concept of "functional music," is intended to be a soundtrack for daily life, with each track's title referring to various tasks. Tracks include 'Music for taking public transport' and 'Music for singing in the shower.'

A press statement says that "these tracks are pieces that support our routine, the reconnection between what we feel and what we do - be it work, chores, art, pleasure or necessity."
Rádio Quantica, a Lisbon label and community radio station formed by Violet and Photonz (who mastered the record) released 'Transparências' digitally on February 23.

Archives 2012-2020, Violet's archival record, was released last year on her second label, naivety. 'Sickle And Hammer' and 'Espirito', both EPs from 2021, are two more recent naïve releases.
Writing on Instagram, the producer says: "I made [this album] so you can use it as a free and universal piece of culture (it also comes with a poetry zine/book) that you come back to whenever you need to soundtrack simple activities that keep your life grounded."
