I remember leaving 5 Seconds of Summer’s Sounds Live Feels Live tour last summer and telling my friends Hey Violet was on the brink of success. So would you believe that just eight months later I was hearing them perform sold-out show? When I saw the group, they were a four piece but now with newest bandmate, Ian Shipp, they’re on their first U.S. headlining tour and made a little stop in Dallas, Texas where they performed at the Cambridge Room in the House of Blues.
The first time I saw Hey Violet perform, I knew Rena and I would get along. I got the cool opportunity to talk with the front-woman of HV and we gushed the release of their second EP, a little bit of love, and world domination. “Brand New Moves” released just a few weeks ago and I won’t even lie to you – it’s been on repeat since then. If you heard their first EP, I Can Feel It, you’ll know Brand New Moves has a different sound. Less rock, more 80s inspired.
