Aly and AJ Michalka, who are now known as 78violet, make their official return with the release of their new single “Hothouse“! After almost five years since their 2007 third studio album Insomniatic, the sister duo are ready to burst back into the scene with their fourth studio album due out later this year via their own Violet House Productions. Produced by David Kahne and co-written with Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger, “Hothouse” is a dreamy and lush indie-pop track that pulls from many of the duo’s musical influences. The song is definitely different from their earlier material but it sounds like an accurate and mature step forward. The girls were always the most experimental out of all their Disney pop labelmates, and they’ve really grown up into something that’s their very own. The song may not be a Top 40 hit but its rich, well written and impeccably produced – get into it! What do you guys think?
