THE VIOLET HUM is an indie-alternative musical chameleon which at its core revolves around the songwriting and production of multi-instrumentalist Matt Arthur (The Coo, The Arthur Brothers).

Arthur crafts melodic and introspective songs reminiscent of ‘The Bends’ era Radiohead, Neil Young and Kate Bush and weaves them into atmospheric and sometimes dense productions from his home studio in Woking, Surrey.
Arthur will be playing songs from The Violet Hum’s debut EP ‘How To Swim’ which comes out on the 3rd of March. He says, “I’m afraid the EP itself offers very little in terms of practical swimming advice. But, I’m proud of the songs anyway. I dedicate it to anyone who has ever felt ‘all at sea’, which to be fair is probably everyone these last few years”.
