Fishtown indie / chamber fivesome Turning Violet Violet has been a steady presence on the city’s music scene these past few years, plugging away at the club circuit and growing its sound to the point where the new Double Cure positively blows the gates off. The album’s thundering percussion and thrilling crescendos create a immediate sense of urgency, heightened by lyrics that long for simpler times in the face of an uncertain future. Meanwhile, the playing and arrangements sound like exactly what they are: the work of five skilled and studied musicians who are just as epic performing live as they are on record. Their Key Studio Session, recorded last night and delivered straight to your ears this morning, is a testament to that; download it below, and feel the energy in person at Turning Violet Violet’s album release show this Saturday May 26 at Kungfu Necktie.
