The Violet Nines are a vibrant outfit from Minneapolis, MN that play groove pop; rhythm-centric alternative fused with funk, rock and R&B. After a music video of the band performing live on a moving boat - while playing guitar and surfing simultaneously - caught circulation, The V9s were heard across the U.S. on independent and college radio.
Fast forward on year later, the band's cross-country, self-booked Violet Heist Tour is a celebration of new sounds heard in several new cities for the first time.
The Violet Nines are known for their multi-fronted approach (something like Lawrence but picture more Jungle or Foster the People). They connect with listeners through electric live performances, prominent bass grooves and rousing saxophone. As described by Dave Franklin of Dancing About Architecture, "Smooth and sensual but also confident and commercial, the pitch perfect between chart territory and a more interesting, more unground roots world."
