Brooklyn-based genre-bending collective Violet Sands and charismatic singer/songwriter Deidre & the Dark have teamed up for an enthralling new single. Called “Desert Rental Home", the dreamy song incorporates indie pop with Americana and folk for an intoxicating listen.
“Desert Rental Home" was written in the height of the pandemic and touches on themes such as escapism, isolation, alternate reality and delusion. Lyrics including, "this room is getting smaller every day / we eat where we work / where we sleep / where we play / so where would you want to be / let's take a vacation / to desert rental home," show just how difficult the quarantine was for many and how small and alone many of us felt. A hypothetical getaway helped soothe the mind and spirit and “Desert Rental Home" touches on this relatable narrative. Musically, the song is a lush and cinematic lullabye complete with hypnotic and smooth vocals over western pop guitars and sparkly keys. A cathartic listen, “Desert Rental Home" is a gorgeous sonic melting pot.
“Desert Rental Home" marks the first collaboration between these creative forces. Take a listen to the song now and remember to follow Violet Sands and Deidre & the Dark on social media.
