Debuting with their first single in two years, Violet Silhouette is continuing their musical journey with dream punk and synth pop in preparation for their EP. The band started in 2021 with their EP “Semipermanentderealization,” and established their darker tone in the new wave scene. 

The single is an upbeat epic. At 5 minutes and 45 seconds, the single is multi-layered and takes the listener on a ride with the “strange wind.” With 80’s synths and reverb brings an incredibly nostalgic energy to the sound, while bringing contemporary guitar in the mix. This makes for a perfect listen while driving at night during the summer. 

What a strange wind
To take you away.
You became a ghost
And I was consumed by flame. 

Check out Violet Silhouette’s new single, “Strange Wind”, available now on major streaming platforms like YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, and SoundCloud.

Also find “Strange Wind” on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture Playlist on Spotify and YouTube.

aSanTIS: ‘You Are a Part of the Highest Form of Creation’

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.

This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
