Remember when everyone on Twitter was sharing those retro-themed videos of their favorite celebrities? Well, Hey Violet has turned that concept into their music video for “Better By Myself.” Released on Friday, April 12th, the video for “Better By Myself” is the group’s first official music video release since 2017’s music video for “Hoodie,” and also the first since the departure of Miranda Miller, who was a member of the group for nine years. The new video shows the four current members – Rena Lovelis, Nia Lovelis, Casey Moreta, and Iain Shipp.
Dressed in old-fashioned styles such as gogo boots and bell bottoms, the members of Hey Violet casually spend their summer in the past, listening to cassettes and blowing bubbles, truly living life “better by myself.” The song’s mid-tempo beat and addictive chorus will leave the listener singing, “I’m better by myself, better by myself,” all day, and the video’s nostalgic visuals will have them wishing they could really go to the past to escape an ex.
