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 song has been debated since its release, but most people tend to agree the song is about a ghoul missing her vampiric master. They also wrote another song for the Masquerade Universe which was in "Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines" entitled "Smaller God".
