NO MONO - VIOLENCE BROKEN
No Mono are back with new track Violence Broken. A collaboration between two of the country's most revered artists Tom Snowdon and Tom Iansek, the pair give us a further look into what is set to be one of the most exciting projects of 2018. The track follows the release of their debut single Butterflies along with it's recently released video, featuring a performance art piece by Snowdon himself.
‘Violence Broken’ keeps things stripped with Snowdon’s gripping vocals bringing a warmth across the track that builds and swells with intensity towards the climax. Iansek explains, “I remember discussing the general themes of the song with Tom; the idea of arriving at the critical point of change in your life, when you decide that the way you have been living is no longer serving you."
He continues, “Tom opened his lyric book to begin writing and the first page he opened to had the words "Violence Broken" written in the middle of the page. We smiled at each other, it encapsulated the idea so well, and the words flowed easily from here.
So the song is about living violently, or against your own nature, and the tumultuous process of moving through this to a place where there is no fear, to live more in line with your truer self. It is grabbing the steering wheel of your life for the first time and realising you have no idea how to drive!”
Violence Broken is out now.
