The duo released the “Choke” EP on Bella Union, the label run by Guthrie and former Cocteau mate Simon Raymonde late 2000. Their highly-acclaimed debut album “Roulette” followed in 2001 on Instinct. A singles collection, “Casino”, followed in early 2002 (Instinct). “Russian Doll”, their official sophomore album was released in 2004 on Bella Union and represents a great artistic leap. Guthrie and De Mare have honed their song-writing partnership to create a flawless collection of sublime pop moments, ranging from desolate torch songs through to hypnotic summer lullabies.
While continuing his work with Violet Indiana, Robin Guthrie remains active on many fronts. 2003 saw the release of Imperial, his debut solo album, which was both a critical and commercial success. More recently he has been collaborating with Ulrich Schnauss and also Harold Budd, with whom he is writing the soundtrack to the new Gregg Araki film, Mysterious Skin. He has also created a short animated film, Lumiere, which he has performed as an interactive musical piece at various multi-media festivals across Europe.
According to Robin Guthrie’s weblog, the duo have been in the studio working on new material.
