Emerging Alt Pop Artist Violette Releases Electric New Single “Stop”


Fans can have a glimpse into what’s to come for Violette with her new synth pop track “Stop,” which premiered exclusively on Global Money World. What originally started as an experiment, “Stop” would go on to become the first single off her forthcoming debut EP, In her beauty lies my death and my life, which is set for release on August 13, 2021. Violette describes the track as the song that sets up the rest of the EP and its storytelling:

“It started as an experiment, just making different sounds with my rings tapping a wine glass and random guitar noises. It was through this song that we figured out what the EP was going to be about, both sonically, lyrically, and narratively

“I wanted to be able to put my diary out there without being so explicit and really tell different stories and put you in different places and different moods without having it explicitly say ‘This is the situation,’ but to kinda paint more of a picture and put you in a world.” – Violette

Creating innovative music that tells a timeless story is a difficult feat, but for Violette, the ability to harness both originality and universality is the underlying strength that defines her artistry. After a successful chapter of her career as a rock-pop front woman, Violette is stepping into the spotlight of her own stage, opening the curtains to reveal a solo project that is a bright reinvigoration of her past achievements. A force that is as bold and brave as it is alluring and enchanting, the Baltimore-based singer/songwriter has cultivated an inspired, anthemic sound that captures a rare balance of daring fearlessness and refined sensibility, savoring strongly of a woman of perceptiveness who has much to say, and a world that is eager to listen.

Violette’s debut EP, In her beauty lies my death and my life, is set to release August 13th of this year. The EP’s leading single “Stop” is now available to stream on all DSPs.

Pink Elefants Share Video for new Song “Peace Song”



With their new song “Peace Sign,” Pink Elefants decided they really wanted to give back to the local community in Baltimore, which has shown them immense support over the years — for both Pink Elefants and their previous projects.

Instead of making a standard music video, the band took the entire budget provided by their label, Chirp Entertainment, and poured it into food, clothes, and other necessities for locals.

That’s right — they gave away all of the money to those in need in their community and to local support programs.

“Ever been in a relationship and you’re trying to work it out, but just can’t come to a solution? You probably get to a point where you just want the disagreement to go away,” the band says. “‘Peace Sign’ is about just saying forget it and moving on, whether that be staying together and forgetting about it, or going your separate ways. Either way, ‘Let me get a peace sign.'”

While the music of Pink Elefants leans pop, the trio incorporates old school hip-hop flair and influences from their alt-rock background to create a genre-less landscape for listeners who seek modern, rule-defying music. Drawing on inspiration from the imagery found in the classic Disney track “Pink Elephants on Parade,” the band aims to express the complexity of human emotion through sound. 

The three very different individuals who comprise Pink Elefants hope to inspire others to challenge themselves and take unfamiliar approaches to modern music. Their true passion lies within the creation of the tracks, and “Peace Sign” does not fall short of their attuned approach to true genre-less magic, standing as close as it does far from the rest of their catalog.
