78Violet (Formerly Aly & AJ) Talk Name Change & New Direction: Watch

89b1ce4b135e975f92792a1384b0a31c 78Violet (Formerly Aly & AJ) Talk Name Change & New Direction: Watch

Everyone’s favorite pop duo 78Violet, formerly known as Aly & AJ (except around my office, where they were known as Godly & SlayJ), have started making the promotional rounds as they begin their comeback — they’re playing a show in Los Angeles tomorrow (June 25) and one in New York on July 9 — and a first stop was a visit to MTV, where they talked about their name change and the new direction they’re taking sonically.

Awesomely, it sounds kind of supernatural and New Age-y and cool to hear Aly explain it: “[We wanted] to find kind of that third element to who we are when we’re onstage, that other voice that is created when the two of us sing together in unison or in harmony,” she said. “78violet is that feminine alter ego when we’re onstage.” Whoa. 

And they’ve grown up quite a bit since their last album as Aly & AJ dropped in 2007: ”I don’t really think it was conscious for us to break away from a younger audience or label or crowd,” AJ explained. “I think it was really natural for us.”

Their debut single as 78Violet, “Hothouse,” drops July 8, which incidentally is also when my life ends.
