Some of the boldest rock that you’ll likely experience this weekend, Ora Violet is the brainchild of multi instrumentalist production duo Black Tiles and guitarist Nick Ferman.
This is a sound that takes the best elements of classic rock and applies a fresh and modern take over it, to create something that is uniquely captivating. So much so that their work has already been supported by the likes of Wonderland, Clash and EARMILK, and praised by The Strokes producer Gordon Raphael.
New single ‘Have You Met Me’ also features vocalist Jeet Mulkerj and Adam Liston on bass.
“Influenced by Grinderman, Elizabeth Wurtzel, Marmaduke Duke & Earnest Hemingway, the song was inspired by the realisation that the same way we go down, we come back up; gradually and then suddenly. The antihero protagonist has lived a life of unapologetic excessive in all ways and despite nearing the end, the statement is clear… I won’t go down.” – Ora Violet
