Lina Hansson of Violet days delivered a pitch-perfect set Tuesday night having flown in from the US only 2 days before. “I was worried about my voice tonight, but this is our last gig before we go home to Sweden for a few days so I can rest,” Hannson says, talking to Neon Music after the gig.
Any personal worries from the band’s lead singer pre-show were proved needless, as Hansson delivered a synth-pop eruption, not missing a note.
The band looked perfectly at home in front of the industry insider heavy crowd at Hoxton’s own Gold Dust Club night and were happy to hang out and have a beer post set watching the next acts on stage.
Tonight’s gig comes after a busy year for the band which saw shows across the US, including stops in both New York & LA and the release of their EP ‘Made in my Head’. Taking inspiration from the sound of Michael Jackson and 60’s comic books, this alternative pop machine looks more than at home on the stage delivering a set of strong material.
Band drummer and producer Kris Eriksson (the man behind The Chainsmokers 2017 monster hit Paris) was wild, oozing an air of confidence and charisma, commanding his own space on the stage.
Da Vinci’s quote, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” rings true here, as the band closed their set with standout track ‘Just A Little’, a perfect storm of pop and electro production.
If you haven’t had a chance to see this band live yet, make sure you do.
