Violet Skies – Burn

Following up her buzzing comeback single Island, Welsh songstress Violet Skies returns with a new excerpt from her upcoming new EP This Was Us. Titled Burn, the track is built around a nocturnal soundscape marked by trap-alike bass and subtle synth effects, with Violet’s outstanding voice topping the whole thing.

Speaking on the track, she said: “I wrote Burn in Berlin last year. It was the beginning of the end of a relationship after waking up that morning to a message I didn’t ever want to see, and realising things were so much more complicated than I’d thought. I then had to head into a session with laryngitis, and in that session I first met Charlie and Felix. So in a way, it was the beginning of the EP too, as they were who I’d been looking for, musically. The song is the exact contents of my head that day, and my laryngitis meant I modified the melody for my voice. I’m not quite sure how we managed to make one of my favourite songs on the record but it happened!
