Listen to No Mono’s New Song, “Violence Broken”

Brooklyn synthpop project, Pagoda have released their debut single, “Hurdles” today.


Breakout Australian duo No Mono has released their second track, “Violence Broken.” The song follows No Mono’s debut single, “Butterflies,” which peaked at #2 on Spotify Australia’s Viral Chart. The duo recently premiered the “Butterflies” video, which features a performance art piece by vocalist Tom Snowdon—watch here.

The new song features Snowdon’s gripping vocals, which bring warmth across the track that builds and swells with intensity. Of “Violence Broken,” artist Tom Iansek says, “I remember discussing the general themes of the song with Tom (Snowdon)—the idea of arriving at the critical point of change in your life when you decide that the way you have been living is no longer serving you. Snowdon opened his lyric book to begin writing, and the first page he opened to had the words ‘Violence Broken’ written in the middle of the page. We smiled at each other; it encapsulated the idea so well, and the words flowed easily from here.” 

Iansek continues, “So the song is about living violently, or against your own nature, and the tumultuous process of moving through this to a place where there is no fear and living more in line with your truer self. It is grabbing the steering wheel of your life for the first time and realizing you have no idea how to drive!”
