CLIMATE CLARITY: THE VIOLET ARCHERS RELEASE TWIN SINGLES “KEEP IT IN THE GROUND” AND “QUIET THIS MORNING”

In “Keep It In The Ground” and “Quiet This Morning,” two new songs by The Violet Archers, frontman Tim Vesely makes his thoughts on the climate crisis clear. “I think of it as me expressing myself as an individual, and then hopefully striking a chord with other people who are thinking along the same lines, and then creating a vibration that’s a little bigger than myself,” Vesely says.

“Keep It In The Ground” employs Vesely’s natural indie pop sensibilities complete with a blues-based upbeat guitar riff, carrying his urgent warning message with gusto. “Quiet This Morning” has a ruminative pace and a post-apocalyptic approach that is equal in alarm. “The main thought in both songs is how we have failed to appreciate how good we’ve had it, how fortunate we’ve been to have hit this sweet spot in which we’ve been able to thrive as a species,” Vesely reflects. “But it’s a precariously balanced sweet spot and there are physical limits to our thriving which is accelerating out of control.”
