Violet – House On Fire

Geelong locals Violet’s new single, House On Fire exudes an energetic, victorious vibe that mirrors the experiences of a teenager navigating the Australian music scene. The track’s unique sound is defined by its powerful layers of distorted guitar, driving bass, and thunderous drums.
