The High Violets

Taking note from the likes of Ride, Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, and the Jesus & Mary Chain, the High Violets define their own swirling dream pop. Clint Sargent (vocals/guitar), Kaitlyn Ni Donovan (guitar/vocals), Allen Davis (bass), and Luke Strahota (drums) formed in the hip pockets of Portland, OR, in the late '90s, emerging from the ashes of the Bella Low and Echoplex. By the new millennium, the group was recording for the Irish label Reverb Records. They contributed their song "Fa" to the import collection 2002 Digital Belfast. The High Violets also inked a deal with the Reverb for their debut album, 44 Down, which was issued worldwide in spring 2002. ~ MacKenzie Wilson

Sound like the Sundays!

This is actually the band's 3rd best song. 2 that are even better are 44 Down and Sun Baby. Those have a more My Bloody Valentine type vibe.

A little resemblance to J&M Chain also - especially the song Cine.

I just heard Chinese Letter and was reminded of The Sundays.

I'm liking this, although Pandora apparently only has the one album from 2006, and there are a few others out there, including one in 2010.

Reminds me a bit of Dandy Warhols, too. Practically neighbors.

I see the Ride and Slowdive connection. But they are a far cry from sounding like My Bloody Valentine. Through the filter of time it is perfectly adequate pop. At the time it must have been pretty trippy.
