Praise for Claude Violante:

“…effortlessly blends ‘90s R&B vocal hooks with ‘80s synth based electronics, forming a distinctive sound that is equal parts delicious throwback and innovative fire” Billboard

“Band Crush” – NYLON Magazine

“Introducing Parisian cool kid It’s a Moroder-cool, synth-sensual track: a little xx, a little Shura. It’s the perfect song for the moment when Michelle Pfeiffer’s character from Scarface slides into that car and drives far, far away.” – VICE’s Noisey
“…layers of synths and ’80s influenced electronic beats. The young Parisian artist and composer creates breathy and sensual vocals”.Stereogum
“Enveloped within the rich 80s synth soundscape are drum patterns that would make Phil Collins weep and breathy vocals that give modern contemporary artists like Rhye and How To Dress Well a run for their money.” – Earmilk

One week in advance of the official release, Billboard Magazine shares Claude Violante‘s full Your Heart Is Weak EP plus an interview with the French artist and producer HERE. Billboard also talked with JD Samson, who signed Claude Violante’s innovative sound to Atlas Chair“The first track I heard was “No Mercy,” and I can’t even explain how it made me feel — the rhythm is so driving, and goes through frenetic moments of freedom with such ease: genius drum explosions pushed up against sounds you just want to hold in your arms. The kick guides you to a most surprising and bouncing celebration of loss of self — and the lyrics break my heart every time. I remember what love is, and what making art with passion is all about.”

Claude Violante’s Your Heart is Weak EP comes out on 7/7 via JD Samson’s co-founded label Atlas Chair in conjunction with the French label Tsunami-Addiction. The EP is available for pre-sale to receive “No Mercy” instantly HERE.
