All Music Guide - Glenn Astarita
Darling Violetta augment their sound and style with strings, horns, and several bassists, for a set featuring nicely placed EFX, crunching guitar chords, and singer Cami Elen's pop-drenched vocals on Parlour.

All Music Guide - Glenn Astarita
Darling Violetta augment their sound and style with strings, horns, and several bassists, for a set featuring nicely placed EFX, crunching guitar chords, and singer Cami Elen's pop-drenched vocals on Parlour. Moreover, they implement a few Beatles-derived studio techniques, à la Sgt. Peppers and Abbey Road during selected tracks. This outfit has provided soundtracks for TV shows and a PC video game amid videos. Hence, a component of the musicians' collective artistry that should come as no surprise upon listening to their overall studio savvy can be found on the piece titled "Candy Jones," in which Darling Violetta aim at a crossover approach via a nicely rendered potpourri of softly strumming guitars, horns, and strings amid a late-'60s, Beatles-type vibe. They also intertwine straightforward rockers with discordant musings and hallowed themes. To that end, Parlour offers a divergent mix, featuring considerably more than your average rock. Although few of these pieces contain memorable melodies or catchy hooks, the group's intelligent game plan yields fruitful dividends when viewed as a whole.

    They are Godzilla, You are Japan

    Hopefully, if you are reading this, you are somewhat educated on the experience that is Darling Violetta. This album is an incredible extension of the sound that you may have had the opportunity to become familiar with. If you have never had the opportunity to enjoy a DV song, this is the best way to do it. Jump in and splash around in their sultry sexy beats. Buy this album.
