Violet Night "Don't Swallow the Cap" (the National cover)

The National completed their transformation into arena rockers with 2013's Trouble Will Find Me, and now Violet Night are looking to follow a similar career path by paying homage to "Don't Swallow the Cap" from that very album.
 
Hailing from British Columbia, the trio of Connor Pohl, T.J. Rounthwaite and Dylan Irvine bonded over a shared love of the '80s and emotional indie-pop — common influences that shine through from the second you hear them play.
 
Before the band head into the studio to start work on their debut LP next month, Exclaim! is giving you a listen to their take on "Don't Swallow the Cap." Give it a spin in the player below.
