Brooklyn ‘grunge-gaze’ outfit Vaureen have released their Violence EP (stream below). The EP’s cover art shows an inky red swirl dispersing over the trio; it’s an apt metaphor for the songs, where colorful swaths of guitar chords and feedback bleed and undulate into one another. These three songs are sure to please fans of My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, and The Breeders.

Vaureen consists of Andrea, Marianne and Cole. Violence follows the band’s debut EP, Dirty Floor, which was released in 2015. The band used Violence as an opportunity to explore the boundaries of their sound with studio experiments like incorrect wiring of pedals. The name Vaureen is derived from the French term le vaurien, which roughly translates to something deviant or no good.
