War Violet is New York-based musician and songwriter Jummy Aremu. A few years ago Jummy self released a lo fi debut EP called Getaway, described by Alt Citizen as “jangly groovy folk pop with Beach Boys and Angel Olsen vibes.” Fast forward to now and with her debut album complete, made with her ever-growing group of friends and collaborators, her sound has evolved into a vast landscape that explores darker themes such as isolation, alienation, identity, and loss. Emerging from a dream and a nightmare, War Violet asks the question, “what do we fill with these open spaces?”

With the goal to illuminate, War Violet is the harsh truth, yet there is beauty. First single “Different Formations” will be released on Kill Rock Stars in the US and on Bella Union in Europe.
