Alt-pop band Hey Violet release their new EP, entitled Brand New Moves, today via Caroline Records.
The five-track set debuted as the #1 artist album on iTunes in the U.S., and U.K. and is now available at all digital retailers. The EP also hit Top 5 on the iTunes charts in Denmark, Norway, Ireland, the Netherlands, Mexico and Canada. The L.A.-based band recently premiered their new song “Brand New Moves” which has already racked up more than 600K Spotify streams.
With a loyal and passionate fanbase built through non-stop touring, along with their well-received debut EP, 2015’s I Can Feel It, Hey Violet are excited to reveal their bold, new, synth-driven sound with Brand New Moves. The band has been in the studio for the past six months co-writing the songs with producer Julian Bunetta.
“We mixed the tracks a bit ’80s style with more synths and drums that sound really fat and big with a groove” says lead singer Rena Lovelis who has stepped up to assume frontwoman duties. “We’re ready and excited to share what we’ve been working on!”
Hey Violet – which is Rena, her sister Nia Lovelis (drums), Miranda Miller (keys, vocals) and Casey Moreta (lead guitar) – have been playing together for several years, and making music individually since they were old enough to ask for lessons. After signing with Hi Or Hey Records last year, Hey Violet got their first taste of rock stardom last year when thousands of fans poured into the streets of Europe and the UK at their spontaneous acoustic sets documented HERE.
Hey Violet recently won the 2016 Teen Choice Award for “Next Big Thing” and the band is currently touring with 5 Seconds of Summer on their ‘Sounds Live Feels Live’ arena tour. Please see below for all upcoming tour dates.
