Artist Biography:
The Crushing Violets was formed in 2014 in Mattituck, NY by BP and Antanina Brooks. Their vision was to fuse crushing melodies with poetic, magical lyrics and where Americana, dream pop, folk, and rock music collide. They just released their debut album titled Starless Sky. It is a collection of songs about mortal frailty, hopes, dreams, despair, faith, and longing. "Where dreams and fate collide" is the opening line from their song Alive. Seeing them live is a psychedelic journey of sight and sound that you don't want to miss.
