POP | Transviolet


Originally formed online through a musician networking site, the synth-pop four-piece Transviolet created music Postal Service-style for a year before relocating to Los Angeles to give it a go in person. Lead vocalist Sarah McTaggart sings catchy melodies in a bright and angelic whisper, while the lyrical concepts are dark and seductive. McTaggart's vocals are complemented by starry electronic dance beats from the guitar, drums, and synth, painting a picture of speeding around late at night while all the neon lights and stars flash past your car. Transviolet's music is ethereal and alluring, written with deep intent and no fluff, complete with epic bass drops and swirling vocal effects.

Transviolet plays with Magic Bronson and The Demos on Saturday, June 16, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue.  8 p.m. $10-$12.;
