Was listening to the XX's I See You all the way through for the first time the other day and I noticed that, vocals aside, A Violent Noise seems like it could have taken direct inspiration from Cichli in terms of its sound, especially towards the end of the track.

 

That or I'm getting old and drawing reaching comparisons. Either way  :cisfor:

ah yeah i can see the similarity. neat observation, not sure if i'd suggest that it was deliberate but i can maybe see it being an influence in an indirect / subconscious way.

I can hear how it sounds similar but tbh it sounds more like a re-appropriated trance lead to me lol

 

then again, I guess cichli is as well

 

fuck I love cichli, one of those super iconic ae tracks

Can kinda hear the similarity. Definitely not deliberate though. Cool track overall; I like their lyrics.
