Listen: Violent Shakes - Take Me Like A Drug


Lisbon-based Violent Shakes make their impact with debut single, 'Take Me Like A Drug'.

Indian Joy and Tornada make up the duo, Violet Shakes who last month put out their debut single to the world, featuring the vocal talents of up and coming singer/songwriter, Mickey Shiloh. The single is an accurate representation of the duo’s individual style and musical history, which mixes a melting pot of influences and styles in one big pop tune.

“It started with this typical African kizomba beat, then we added oriental percussions and Arabic strings,” the duo say of the single’s origin. With the duo helming from Lisbon, where kizomba has been a popular influence in music for years, it’s clear that they’re looking to take the influence further than mainland Europe.
