Violet Days – “Afterparty” | Review

Violet Days get used to being on their own on new single, “Afterparty.”

The duo that make up Violet Days, singer Lina Hansson and producer Kris Eriksson, definitely have something special to share, go an listen to their debut EP, Made In My Head, and tell me it isn’t a brilliant slice of alt-pop!

“Afterparty” continues in a similar vein to the EP, offering big beats and smooth vocals!

The song opens softly, focusing on Hansson’s vocals before a pulsating undercurrent carries us to the tropical-infused, hands-in-the-air style celebratory breakdown.

About the song, Hansson said;  “I wanted to write about this feeling when there is no way to escape your thoughts of feeling alone, I think a lot of people struggle with that sometimes but we don’t talk so much about it.”

“Faces in the crowd, I don’t really even know ’em/But I still want ’em closer, to have someone around/And it would be okay if the night was never over/If time was going slower and never runnin’ out”

While the song offers strong summer vibes that just makes you want to dance, there’s a definitive hopeless feeling that eventually grows into hopefulness about feeling alone, in both the lyrics and the synthy production.

Violet Days are currently on the road as direct support to The Midnight. The 18-city tour began at the end of March and will be wrapping up on May 4th in Oakland, CA.
