Video: Cassandra Violet, "Beyond The Fray"

LA native and singer-songwriter, Cassandra Violet, has been quietly building an army of devoted followers with her catchy and clever folk pop tunes. Her 3 song EP, 'Beyond The Fray,' was funded through a kickstarter campaign. She also made a video for the title track. Hand claps and stomps make up most of the instrumentation, along with Violet's powerful harmonies. The song's sparse arrangement matches the wide open deserted landscape chosen for the setting in the video. While the song has a pretty quality, it's just a guise luring you in like a black widow calling you into her web. She creates a spooky, ghost town, chill-inducing atmosphere. Reminiscient of The Civil Wars if they were produced by Kimbra, Cassandra Violet is certainly one to watch. Peep the video below and get caught in her web. - Jacqueline Caruso
