Frozen Heart 04:12
Take your time With my heart Cuz I'm  Falling apart Frozen heart Melting through my hand  Trembling limbs Shaking by my side Trembling glances Terrify my mind Frozen heart Melting through my hand  You're a mirror  Of my darkness Familiar senses  Washed out regret You're a mirror Of my darkness  Frozen heart Melting through my hand  Frozen heart
Was it real Come around when the weathers changed Clouds are heavy filling up with rain Mist is falling my visions turn to grey I can see your silhouette You’re fading fast without regret Phantom youth haunts my lonely roads I turn around You turn to stone Illusions taking turns with you I lost my mind You lost yours too I lost my mind I lost my mind Phantom youth haunts my lonely roads You turn around I turn to stone Was it real Was it real Can you break it Can you break me
13 Days 03:48
My lucky stars Falling into the ground Fires are growing into the past Thirteen days I will find you But I can’t recognize you If I could tear you out of me Where would I be
Fly into the sun I’m here to make sure you burn To make sure you burn Can you feel it Reveries in me Daydream to see I lived across from lucky stars I loved on streets with broken cars Can you feel it Reveries in me Daydream to see Stargaze Empty Can you feel it Reveries in me Daydream to see Stargazer free


Melting dark 80s synthwave, shoegaze and ethereal vibes seamlessly under Dani Mari’s glittery vocals, Violentene gives you its new ode to innocence lost.

Roland brings an early 80s synth and new wave influence from Japan, Gary Numan, and Cocteau Twins and the guitar shimmer of Johnny Marr and Robert Smith to the mix, while Dani Mari wraps her bittersweet vocals around warm, breathy tones.

Its been a long, deep journey since 2017 and Violentene’s first EP – so many emotions, life challenges, and rethinking / rewriting happened in the interim. A concept album without trying to be one, the vibes are most certainly in line with its title – a yearning for and an ode to innocence lost... and the strength to keep moving ahead.

“Phantom Youth" pulls a love of analog synths, 80s noir-wave, ambient shoegaze riffs, and dreamy vocal flourishes into the mix. Rolands guitars, synths, and beats melt under Danis breathy, bittersweet vocals to mesmerizing effect.

For fans of Drab Majesty, The Cure, Boy Harsher and Cocteau Twins.
