Matt Kivel – Violets

LA-based Matt Kivel has unveiled Violets to stream ahead of the release of his third album Janus.

Recorded in Glasgow with Drag City’s Alasdair Roberts, together with a supporting cast of local musicians, it’s a dreamlike track with strong tints of introspective pop, a jangling guitar and Kivel’s plaintive voice.

With each listen you’ll gain an increasing appreciation for Kivel’s ability to craft a song which, might at first seem a little on the whimsical side, reveals itself to be a piece of work with many layers.

Janus will be released on Driftless Recordings on the 5th of February, and it’s available for pre-ordering now.
