Scarlet Season have released "History of Violence," the second single from the debut CD, "The Taxidermist."
Scarlet Season is the stage name of Aileen Paron, a self-taught pianist whose desire for autonomy and passion for learning all things musical inspired her to take the DIY approach to recording, programming, and composing. Paron produced the Scarlet Season debut album The Taxidermist herself with co-production by Matt Frickelton of The Fading Collection.
Scarlet Season is already being compared to artists such as Bjork, Tori Amos, Goldfrapp, Bat For Lashes and Depeche Mode, both in sound and in lyrics that chronicle themes of anger, loss, betrayal and loneliness.
It is material that is admittedly personal and at times uncomfortably so, but Paron believes that pop music needn't be fluffy. Pop music packaging needn't be either: The haunting illustrations by Matt Strieby that adorn the cover of The Taxidermist were inspired by an actual Parisian taxidermy shop.
