“Leeds queens of riot are fast, furious, and fantastic” – This Feeling
“This is what I’m talking about by being bold in your music” – Jack Saunders, BBC Radio 1
Leeds’ all girl rock group, VENUS GRRRLS are back with their riotous new offering, ‘Violet State of Mind’, the band’s first release since their 2021 EP Potions. The song and accompanying music video carry a dark aura with a piercing energy that’s both infectious and a whole lot of fun.
“’Violet State of Mind’ is the anthem to your hot girl summer, be it spending time with your best mates in the sun, or falling in love with yourself and/or someone else,” the band explain. “We want this song to be on your get ready playlists and allow you to reach into those inner deities that we know you are.”
With this new release, VENUS GRRRLS continue to cement their presence in the alt-rock scene, with ‘Violet State of Mind’ capturing the sounds of the delicious 90s Riot Grrrl era. The track’s opening bass line and heavy guitar riff wouldn’t sound out of place on an old L7, Bikini Kill, or Veruca Salt album, with powerful vocal performances and pounding drums that allow the group to pull off a nostalgic sound in their own fresh and exciting way.
VENUS GRRRLS have figured out how to build off the momentum from Potions and come out even stronger with ‘Violet State of Mind’. Now the rockers are thrusting themselves into stardom, securing spots to play at Kendal Calling and a main stage slot at sold out Truck Festival – expect electrifying performances that won’t want to be missed.
Composed of GK (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Jess Ayres (lead guitar), Hannah Barraclough (bass), Grace Stubbings (Synth) and Gabby Cooke (drums), VENUS GRRRLS are a tenacious group of rockers advocating for respect of women in the music industry. They aim to bring fortitude and activism through their loud, hard-hitting signature brand of alternative rock.
