I hope you’re well. I was hoping to get your thoughts on the Los Angeles-based Darkwave/Electropunk project Violent Vickie, who is releasing her new track “SEROTONIN” on February 14.
After touring with Hanin Elias of Atari Teenage Riot and supporting Trans X, Them Are Us Too, & The Missing Persons., Violent Vickie is back with an explosive new track “Serotonin”, the first single off her sophomore LP “Division”. In “Serotonin” Vickie croons and wails over noisy beats, cryptic synth lines, & droning guitars, toying with her demons and ultimately, willfully releasing them. Co-produced by E, this track could very well be a call or end to some kind of psychic war.
