The Violet Stones prove themselves as a musical tour-de-force on Intensify

The Violet Stones are a melting pot of everything you love about grunge rock; mind-bending guitar riffs, thunderous drums, and vitriolic vocal hooks.

With the release of their debut single Intensify, the group have immediately established themselves as one of the most promising emerging acts in Aussie rock music. If you’re not already familiar with this band, we strongly recommend you change that.

After four years of playing together, Western Sydney-based outfit The Violet Stones are finally ready to share their killer debut single Intensify.

High school band turned musical tour-de-force, The Violet Stones have a world of experience on stage. Having gigged extensively across Australia for years now, this new single is a long time coming… but rest assured, it’s well worth the wait.

If you’re a Nirvana or Incubus fan you’re in for a treat! Intensify is one hell of a debut. The guitars are beautifully gritty, the drums are momentously aggressive, the bass is rhythmic and funky, and the vocals are melodic with the right amount of contempt and punch. The swirling cymbals and face-melting riffs will transport you to a world where no one takes anyone else’s shit, and it’s pretty intense.

These are still relatively early days for The Violet Stones, but judging by the quality of what we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more quality tunes.

In the meantime, do yourself a favour and listen to Intensify above.
