Violet
by Hole
(90 plays) | (0 fans)

"Violet" is the first song on "Live Through This" and was written about the singer’s relationship with Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins. The recurring issue, which unfortunately hasn’t lost its relevance, is the exploitation and (self-) abasement of women, in this case concealed under a veil of romance."

“A lot of this album focuses on the subconscious and dreams, this song being the pivotal moment of these themes,” frontman Charlie Steen said in a statement. “A song about love that is lost and the comfort and displeasure that comes after you close your eyes, fall into sleep, and are forced to confront yourself.” https://www.stereogum.com/2109382/shame-snow-day-drunk-tank-pink/music/ https://shamebanduk.bandcamp.com/
