We here at THP love Hey Violet. Sisters Rena and Nia Lovelis along with best friend Casey Moreta have been playing under the name Hey Violet since 2015. Throughout the years they’ve released two EPs, one album, and multiple singles. Their ever-evolving sound keeps fans constantly begging for more. The more we got to know the band the more we fell in love, and we’re sure you will too. We could spend all day listing off reasons to stan the band, but for the purpose of keeping this article short and sweet, we’re going to narrow it down to five.
1. Their Music
Like any good artist, the main reason to stan Hey Violet is their music! Rena’s vocals sound like those from an angel and Nia’s drumming is enough to intimidate a grown man who has been playing for decades. Combined with Casey’s killer guitar playing you really can’t go wrong. The band has a song for any possible mood; bubbly pop songs, deeper and more meaningful songs, love ballads, break up songs, and even some older songs with a rock-inspired sound. A few fan-favorites we’d recommend are ‘Clean,’ ‘O.D.D.’ and ‘Can’t Take Back The Bullet.’
2. Their Style
That’s right, the second reason to stan Hey Violet is their style! The band is always rocking the best outfits (even you Casey) and we’re super jealous! Whether they’re performing on stage, attending an event, or shooting for a music video they’re always the best dressed. From t-shirts and jeans to glamorous coats and dresses, they are always the epitome of fashion. Not to mention their makeup and hair are always perfect.
3. The Way They Care For Their Fans
The relationship between Hey Violet and their fans is superior. They are always going the extra mile to show fans they care, whether it be sending out handmade soap or holiday cards, or chatting with fans for hours on end. They spend so much time communicating through Twitter, Discord, Instagram lives, silly YouTube videos, and playing Among Us that the bond with many of their fans is more like that of best friends or siblings. More recently they’ve even made the effort to create special puzzles for fans to give them hints of new music to come.
4. Their Amazing Covers
Of course, we adore Hey Violet originals, but we also love their covers. From the beginning, Hey Violet has been covering songs from stars such as Echosmith and Imagine Dragons. They caught the attention of Taylor Swift herself when they put a twist on her song ‘Blank Space’ on tour back in 2015. Rena even joined the 5SOS guys on stage to sing their song ‘Waste The Night.’ Every time the band plays a cover of a new song they make it their own and we are here for it.
5. They Keep It Real
Hey Violet stay true to themselves, which is one of the reasons we love them so much. They speak their minds about what’s important to them, which is nice to see. Many artists are afraid to be themselves and speak out about issues that may be deemed controversial, but not these three. They also aren’t afraid to be weird, and we can’t help but want to join them. They just have fun and don’t care about what others think.
Those are just five of the endless reasons we stan Hey Violet. If you’re not already a fan we hope you check out the band and love them as much as we do.
