As we head into the summer season, the need for a summer anthem is a call a lot of artists are heeding to. Every artist dreams of their song becoming the unofficial song to the most energetic season of the year. For the creators of “Drugs in California,” it’s a song that should be getting ample radio play. California-based indie-pop band Transviolet is making a strong case for their rise in the pop genre category. Fresh off their 2020 album, Born to Rule, Transviolet is back with their new fully loaded EP, Blue Flowers.
Transviolet consists of Sarah McTaggart, Judah McCarthy, Micheal Panek, and Jon Garica. There’s something very unique about Transviolet’s sound. To call them just an indie-pop band would be an insult to their talents. If you listen closely, their sound is more than what just appears on the surface. Peeling back the layers, R&B, funk, and electronic can be found. Embed in their music, Transviolet is rising quickly in the music industry. It’s not something they haven’t seen before though. Overall, Transviolet music is just plain good fun, fused with moments of brightness and energy.
From Sarah McTaggart’s unique connection to Katy Perry to working with some of the hottest producers, safe to say the industry is on notice. The band has toured with some of pop rock’s biggest acts like LANY and Twenty One Pilots. Artists like Katy Perry and Harry Styles have shown support for Transviolet. Everyone is in agreeance, Transviolet is a breath of fresh air.
Transviolet has released a few projects first linking up in 2015. In that span, Transviolet has continued to push limits and sounds. Their first 2015 self-titled EP, gave us a rough, but raw look at their music. Things have only progressively gotten better as the years went on, releasing singles and EPs along the way. Last year, Transviolet released their debut album, Born to Rule. With their newest EP, Blue Flowers, just a few weeks old, we may have just found our summer anthem.
