HEY VIOLET debut new video for “CLOSE MY EYES”

Fresh off a headline mini tour of the U.S., Hey Violet premiere the video for their new track Close My Eye today on Vevo. Watch it HERE. Shot in Los Angeles, the video was directed by Marcella Cytrynowicz who also lensed the video for the bands recent single Better By Myself.

Close My Eyes, which was written by Hey Violet with Sean Kennedy, Tim Anderson, and Aron Forbes (the latter two who co-produced), is the second of four new tracks the band is set to release throughout the spring and summer. The first, Better By Myself, was released in April, along with an official video that can be watched HERE. Idolator called Better By Myself as catchy as it is relatable, while Celeb Mix says the song’s mid-tempo beat and addictive chorus will leave the listener singing [it] all day. Watch Hey Violet perform Better By Myself live at Capitol Studios HERE.

Close My Eyes is essentially about living in a fantasy land, says front woman Rena Lovelis. It’s about the idea of still wanting to be with an ex who has already moved on. There’s definitely a level of denial that goes into being in that sort of headspace because you’re basically rejecting the present reality and not allowing yourself to move forward. The song sounds very calm and chill but in the lyrical content there’s an air of tension because of that refusal to accept things as they are.

Hey Violet’s 2017 debut album From the Outside featured the singles Guys My Age, which has amassed over 250 million global streams, Break My Heart, and Hoodie which is approaching 200 million streams. The album racked up critical praise, including accolades from The New York Times, which called it one of this year’s best and most provocative pop albums. Stereogum noted that it has plenty of attitude thanks to Lovelis vocal and lyrical presence, and NYLON declared, I challenge you to find a debut album as explosive and technicolored as Hey Violet’s From The Outside(the album) pulses with cheeky hooks and middle fingers to the status quo. Lead singer Rena Lovelis’ voice is arena-shaking. You’re in for one hell of a ride.

Over the past few years, Hey Violet, which is Rena Lovelis, her sister Nia Lovelis (drums), and Casey Moreta (lead guitar) have steadily built an engaged fanbase with their powerful, immaculately crafted alt-pop songs. Guys My Age was named one of the Best Songs of 2016 by The New York Times, who called it teen-pop’s revenge: an urgent dark song about sexual rebellion and one of the 20 Best Songs of 2016 by V Magazine. In 2017, Hey Violet was also nominated for an iHeart Radio award for Best Underground Alternative Band, dubbed an Artist Primed For A Breakout by Billboard, and named Artist To Watch by The Guardian, PopCrush, and more. The band has racked over half a billion streams worldwide, sold out their North American headline tour and performed on both The Late Late Show With James Corden and Late Night With Seth Meyers.

Harvest Records To Release III

On July 12, Harvest Records will release BANKS‘ third album, titled simply, III. Today, Annie Mac debuted the track Look What You’re Doing To Me; ft. Francis and The Lights as the Hottest Record in the World on her BBC Radio 1 show. BANKS teamed up with co-producers BJ Burton (Bon Iver) and Francis and The Lights (the musical project of Francis Farewell Starline, who is also known for his collaborations with such artists as Kanye West and Chance the Rapper), to record the song. In addition to playing piano, Francis joins BANKS on vocals. Listen to Look What You’re Doing To Me HERE.
“Look What You’re Doing To Me is a song about love. About falling in love, being in love and how you feel when you’re high on love, says BANKS. Vibrant, scared, on fire, excited, and all the goodness in between.”
III is now available for pre-order HERE. Fans who pre-order the album in digital format will instantly receive Look What Youߣre Doing To Me; plus the single, Gimme, which has already amassed nearly 10 million streams and was hailed by TIME Magazine as a song You Need to Listen to. See below for the full track listing.
The III Tour will take BANKS across North America, the UK and Europe. The fan ticket presale for the North American leg begins today at 10:00 AM local time. The headline run will include a September 8 show at Brooklyn Steel in New York and an October 1 concert at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. See below for itinerary. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 14, at 10:00 AM local time at LiveNation.com. BANKS will offer VIP packages for each show with options that include GA tickets with priority access, Meet & Greet, limited edition merchandise, and more.

Citi is the official presale credit card of BANKS‘ III tour. As such, Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase U.S. presale tickets beginning today, June 11, at 10:00 AM local time until Thursday, June 13, at 10:00 PM local time through Citi Entertainment. For complete presale details visit.

BANKS will also perform at such festivals as Music Midtown in Atlanta, Life is Beautiful in Las Vegas and Austin City Limits. The UK/EU leg of The III Tour will kick off on November 1 in Manchester and include a November 4 show at the Roundhouse in London.
Life has its extremes as documented on BANKS‘ Goddess and The Altar but there’s a lot to exalt in, in between, and that’s the story III tells. III is BANKS‘ most nuanced release yet, coming after a self-imposed period of quiet and reflection. This album is an ode to my journey, says BANKS. It documents a major growth spurt. Of self-acceptance, letting go, forgiveness, and deep love. It has been painful to realize that life is not black and white. Romanticism leads to fierce reality checks, which leads to wisdom, which leads to deeper empathy which leads to greater love. This album documents the cycle.
BANKS has amassed 1.2 billion global streams to date across all of her songs, including over 600 million cumulative streams in the U.S. alone. After the release of her breakout debut album, Goddess, she became the world’s most blogged about artist. The 2014 album included the RIAA-certified Platinum hit Beggin For Thread and the Gold single Waiting Game. The Altar, released in 2016, debuted in the Top 10 in over 30 countries on iTunes. BANKS has performed on such television shows as Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and Late Show with David Letterman. Her songs have been heard in films (Divergent, The Longest Ride) and licensed by such television shows as Grey’s Anatomy and Power.

Mabel Releases Mad Love

This follows the unstoppable success of recent single Don’t Call Me Up which spent 8 weeks in the top 10 (as well as going top 10 globally on Spotify and landing Mabel her first hit around Europe and the US). Off the back of performances on The Graham Norton Show and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Mabel has also been confirmed as the UK’s first ever Youtube Artist On The Rise which was just launched at Piccadilly Circus with a preview of Mad Love. An extensive run of live dates now follows into the end of the year, including Mabel’s UK & European tour with Khalid. 

Thrilling, unapologetic and liberated, Mad Love is an anthem for women to call the shots and talk about exactly what (and who) they want. Written by Mabel alongside Steve Mac and Kamille, the winning trio behind Don’t Call Me Up Mad Love arrives alongside an iconic video directed by Marc Klasfeld, who has previously worked with the likes of Cardi B, Destinys Child, and Jay Z. Watch the video here. The video further showcasing this fierce, increasingly-fearless young woman living out all her wildest pop-star-dreams, but in thoroughly modern, warts-and-all style. 
It’s this extraordinary journey to where she finds herself now that is encapsulated on Mabel‘s debut album, High Expectations: a record – and a state-of-mind, in many ways – that she has worked towards her whole life (even getting the title tattooed phonetically on her neck when she first thought of it two years ago, knowing firmly that it would never change). At just 23-years-old, the twice-Brit-nominated artist has already sold over 3.5 million singles in the UK (three platinum, three gold, and two silver), surpassed 1 billion streams, and sold out the likes of Brixton Academy. Across her formative singles and first long-form project, Ivy To Roses (which also went silver), Mabel has written with startling candour on young love, identity, girl power, and mental health – topics which are taken to greater heights on High Expectations. And on that road to her first record, Mabel‘s music has become a soundtrack for her impassioned young female fanbase, but also for herself on how to turn those vulnerabilities into your advantages. 
“Talking about it really does give you a kind of confidence, Mabel says now, and that’s new for me. If you’re really going to make a record that talks to people you have to sit and pick at old wounds put everything under a microscope. I would’ve loved that from my heroes when I was kid. That dream of pop stars having a perfect life has gone for our generation.
Stripping away music’s artifice while keeping true to its giddiness and excitement is Mabels special gift. Out of some troubling times she has fashioned a sensational, fizzing debut record, a blue-chip British album which can sit proudly on a global stage next to The Weeknd, Ariana, Drake and whatever Queens B and R have in mind for their 2019. In mood, if not exactly in sound, it has some of the complete realisation of early TLC or Aaliyah, had they spent their teenage years in Sweden, Malaga, or the backstreets of West London. The calling card of High Expectations is the brusque, street charm that hides in plain sight among its hooky gloss, and anchors the albumߣs core theme of expectations (those as a woman, of love, of others, and ultimately of yourself.)
“I want to send a positive message to everyone that’s going to listen to it. I’ve gained so much confidence from writing this album and that’s what I want people to take away. Mabel
Now poised to join the pantheon of international pop greats, her tireless energy, positivity and drive were never going to allow Mabel to settle for anything other than High Expectations. In 2019 watch Mabel meet them and keep reaching higher still.

Jeffries has spent much of the past year DJ-ing major events like the Vanity Fair Oscar party and the Apple Music x Beats 1 party at Coachella. The live set is a full experience, with a lot of visual stimulation in the lights and video elements, says Jeffries, who has a 2019 Las Vegas residency with Hakkasan Group.
