Formed in São Paulo, Brazil, Violent Attitude If Noticed (or simply V.A.I.N.) have been working their way through the music scene spreading their word since 2008.

The musical background of the band is based upon the varying personal tastes of each members. It is possible to identify influences of jazz, bossa nova, blues, post punk, new wave, art rock, electro, hard rock and progressive rock. All these elements summed together result in the unique sound that is V.A.I.N.

Textures, layers, noisy backgrounds, ambient landscapes, drum machines, acoustic guitars, heavily distorted guitars and clean guitars (a lot of guitars!) are just some of the tools used to develop its musicality. It is not uncommon to hear quiet and mellow sounds changing into what may appear to be a sudden nightmare.

V.A.I.N. had previously produced and released EPs and full length albums without any label help. On the other hand, the band are always counting on some well known professionals to make it happen so names like Neil Whitman, Erik Muller Thurm, Jon Astley and Will Geraldo are commonly involved with the releases.

The current line up brings together Alessandro Queler, Guilherme Saba and Will Geraldo, whilst bands like Death By Visitation Of God, The Opposite Of Hate and Test Record Stereo are all in V.A.I.N.’s genealogical tree.
