"Darling Violetta" is a dark pop band based in Hollywood, California. They released their first EP ''Bath-Water-Flowers'' in 1997, though this work is commonly considered an album by most sources. Two songs from ''Bath-Water-Flowers'' ("Cure" and "Blue Sun") were performed by the band in the episode "Faith, Hope & Trick" of the television series ''Buffy the Vampire Slayer''. Next year, the band composed the popular theme for ''Angel'', the spinoff series from ''Buffy''.
In 2000, Darling Violetta released ''The Kill You'' EP, and in 2003, the album ''Parlour''.
In 2005, the band composed an extended version of the ''Angel'' theme called "The Sanctuary Extended Remix", featured on the soundtrack of the series ''Live Fast - Die Never''.
The style of the band is recognizable for the voice of singer Cami Elen (compared by some critics to that of PJ Harvey), the use of cello and violin, specially in their early compositions, and lyrics charged with sexual innuendos, dark metaphors and goth references.
Darling Violetta also wrote and produced a song for Activision for their game, "Vampire the Masquerade: Redemption", titled "I Want to Kill You". The meaning of the so...
