Some songs just capture the essence of a season so perfectly that you always associate them with a certain time in your life; Marianne Ross' "violet" is just the perfect fragment of hope amidst the bleak post-Holiday season. An acoustic indie-pop gem a'la Clairo, only Ross' second release ever, the song signals a very bright future for the budding singer/songwriter.
Deceptively simple, but with the masterful depth of a songwriter with years of experience, "violet" is a song that will linger with you for a long time after listening. Catchy and hummable, it's no wonder why the song experienced a viral moment on Instagram Reels as thousands of listeners flocked to the Beabadoobee-adjacent, mid-Winter ear worm. Capturing some special emotions with her breathy, angelic vocals, fans should look for a big year from the brand-new, rising star that is Marianne Ross.
