Behind Matte/Glossy hides Violeta, a former punk singer with classical vocal training, who starts Matte/Glossy in Vienna in 2017 with the intention of learning to produce pop songs on her own. She offers the contemporary prototype of a self-made musician, writing and producing in her bedroom. She creates alien pop songs, short and unpredictable, in which all the protagonism is carried by the lyricism of her voice, surrounded by layers of harmonies and dissonances. Her performances are marked by an eccentric acting style that relies heavily on theatricality. She has released her debut album in July 2021 under the labels Numavi Records (Vienna) and Snap Clap Club (Barcelona) and has played in Austria, Spain, the Czech Republic and Italy.
