Violet Skies – Liar

The most impressive thing about Violet Skies‘ song is her vocal control. Beyond the natural beauty of the voice, Violet seems always confident enough, whether she’s singing a Kanye’s tune or sharing her heart troubles. “I’m painting a portrait/ made of colours dark as you” is the first line of Violet’s hearthbreaking, Ed Tulled-produced, new single Liar, a slow-burning piece built over sparse beats and lush, rich synthesizers. The emotional side of the track is all on Violet’s shoulders and the Welsh singer/songwriter brings out all the nuances of her complicated love story.

Violet Skies is currently working on her yet-to-be-titled album, which should be released later this year. Listen to Liar below.
