From the wilds of North East England - inspired by a collective disdain for the 9-5, the shockingly low demand for “Peter Green enthusiast” at the jobcentre and an all-round love of ballsy tunes, Idle Violets were formed in early 2012. Touching on a variety of lyrical themes, Idle Violets incorporate a wide-range of influences to create a funky yet brooding blend of Grunge, Blues and Rock n’ Roll. The band was first conceived when three young urchins conspired to record a number of demos in an abandoned Teesside community centre. Their debut EP, released just over a year later on 9th May 2013, featuring the songs ‘Bleed’, ‘Give It All’, ‘Bother Me’, ‘The Man With No Name’ and culminating in the tongue-in-cheek call to revolutionary arms that is ‘Noise Pollution’, has received favourable reviews and radio airplay courtesy of BBC Tees’ Bob Fischer.
