“Afterparty”, released via Universal Sweden/Symphonic, is Violet Days’ first release of 2019 and the followup single to their debut EP Made in my Head that came out late 2018.
“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,” explains Lina. “‘Afterparty’ is a typical moment that brings that feeling out, the contrast of having a lot of people around you at one second, and the next one they’re gone; It’s just bittersweet. It’s a dialog with myself trying to get better at being alone.”
Violet Days is 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.

ABOUT VIOLET DAYS
Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, Violet Days is the collaborative project between singer-songwriter/artist Lina Hansson and songwriter/producer Kris Eriksson.
Individually and as a creative team, Hansson and Eriksson have built a venerable reputation within the songwriting world via their official songwriting and production work with top artists including Phoebe Ryan, Shaun Frank and The Chainsmokers, whose hit song “Paris” Kris co-wrote. Elsewhere, Lina was nominated for Rookie Songwriter/Producer of the Year at the 2015 Denniz Pop Awards in her native Scandinavia.
As Violet Days, they have already been gaining major traction: Their early releases have racked up millions of plays on Spotify, with first single, “Your Girl,” counting over 13 million streams on that platform alone.
In October 2018, Violet Days released their debut EP, Made in My Head. Produced in its entirety by Kris, Made in My Head weaves together a dreamy soundscape found at the sonic intersection of electronic music production and alternative pop. The EP includes lead single “Somber,” a passionate ballad featuring guest vocalist Morgxn, as well as the edgy “Just A Little” and the commanding “I Think” as singles.
With Made in My Head, Violet Days took their most ambitious leap to date, moving to the center of the stage and in front of the world.
