[Excerpt from Impose Magazine]

Today, we have a new joint effort from the smoldering Violet Sands and nu-disco producer Justin Faust that carries that particular flame channeled through a slightly more modern prism.

“What Do You Feel” finds Faust wading in more down-tempo waters as he explores the brilliant aural canvas that is the enveloping aesthetic of Violet Sands. The result is a layered, mysterious, dark yet shimmering track perfect for the opening or closing credits of any show or movie.

Violet Sands’ Derek Muro shares:

“We met Justin while he was in New York visiting from Germany, introduced by Robert Perlick-Molinari (of our label and French Horn Rebellion) who suggested that we collaborate. In an afternoon, we began experimenting with the vintage synth collection at our studio – notably the Wurli, Roland and Oberheim instruments – embracing the early-aughts electronica influence, which came out even more once Deidre wrote the lyrics and added her vocals.

After only a few hours, we had the shape of the song nearly complete and decided to meet for another session that week where the song really came together.”
