“Never give a fuck about your bad intentions” chants Transviolet in their new single “Bad intentions.” It’s a mutation of trip hop, R&B, and synthpop where Transviolet captures the no-fucks-given mode we all been in when our partying habits massacres our neurons responsible for avoiding creeps and practicing common sense. You have to admit it though – it felt so right at that moment. And that moment only:

“I’d been listening to a lot of Beegees, Blondie and The Weeknd, and really wanted to try and write our version of a disco/dance song. We were in the studio with Nathaniel Motte from 30H!3 having the most ridiculous time just writing this song about being too fucked up to care about all the creeps creepin.” shared Transviolet’s lead vocalist Sarah.
