WATCH: Violens Breaks Out In New York

Brooklyn trio Violens—Jorge Elbrecht, Myles Matheny and openly queer member Iddo Arad—recently played a launch party for their sophomore album, True, at New York‘s Le Poisson Rouge. Blending dream-pop and shoegazing sensibilities, the band create infectious, melody-driven songs that hook instantly and continue to grow on you over time.

Plus they offer fans tons of free goodies, like remixes and mixtapes, via their website.

Above, check out the video for True‘s first single, “Der Microarc.” Below, are a few more of clipa, including an awkward, brief interview for the fictitious cable-access show Gay Nation Access, an ’80’s synthpop-style take on their debut album’s “Full Collision, and a George Michael-esque “In The Trees” remix of their “Acid Reign.”
