Sam and Ryan are the Madison, WI-based duo behind brightviolet and they recently dropped their new EP, “orchid”. Influenced by lo-fi hip-hop, warm indie tones, and electronic textures, these six distinct yet cohesive tracks lead listeners through the sharp contrast between Wisconsin’s relentless winters and memorable summer nights.

Through these six is Pink where organic layers weave with throbbing textures. Vocoded vocals stretch with the tranquil embers of nightfall and a pitter-patter of elements roll, flutter, and drift from one season to the next.
