“Violas are a band from Wales (you can definitely hear the accent in the song) and are so underrated and fresh. With only 400+ fans on their Facebook page, these guys definitely are in need of some deserved exposure!” AMPED+DANGEROURS
“Die pingelige e-gitarre, ergänzt um einen unmotiviert jangelnden kollegen, dazu der flotte beat, die schwebesounds, das haut hin und macht sich eines virus gleich breit” DAS KLIENICUM
“Ethereal-sounding dream pop from bilingual Cardiff band, whose brooding layers of sound reverberate neatly and shimmer to gorgeous effect.” WALES ONLINE
“Local hero’s Violas are a great indie/math rock five piece; combining English and Welsh vocals and mesmerisingly intricate riffs to create an exciting stage dynamic.” ZOO POP
“Without a doubt one of the finest bands on the local scene. Violas clearly proved tonight that they have great potential. They worked their way through a very enthralling set. The music that Violas create is both intense and beautiful, and demands utmost attention from the listener” A MUSICAL PRIOROTY
“Wales has long been a fertile breeding ground for psychedelic guitar-based pop, and Violas continue in the vein of Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci et al with their own gloomy sets of wiggy and atmospheric jams. Sometimes instrumental and sometimes with vocals (in Welsh and English), last year’s Hwylio//Sailing EP is not too different from their live sound: studious, brooding and very, very good.” 405
“What they actually deal in is music with a brooding intensity, that emanates from their ability to conjure up a sweeping textured sound which has a pleasant habit of swelling to a crescendo.” A SOUND REACTION
“Up-and-coming wonders who blend gritty sounds with imaginative musicianship to form one hell of a live show” AFTERDARK
“they’ll always be competing with viola manufacturers……..” FISHBOOK
“Welsh indie rock act, Violas, have a new EP out, Hwylio//Sailing, and it’s a perfect introduction to the smooth melodies that the band has to offer. All three tracks have pounding drums, hypnotic riffs, and a keen knack for putting substance over style. Check it out” HANDCLAP MOVEMENT
“Their music is self-described as a dreamy brand of indie pop, but it’s a lucid dream, controlled by the Welsh Violas and their intense desire to jangle you right down to your spurs.” THE WOUNDED JUKEBOX
“Sea Shells is a single released from the band’s debut EP. It takes all of about 4 to 5 seconds at the beginning of this track to notice how talented these guys are” SOWNDS
