Singer Hanna Brewer says the band don't identify with one genre. "I feel our music was affected by a lot of the hate that comes out of the south," she says. "There's a lot of people out there against anything that ain't straight, white and Christian. It made us want to be whatever we want!"
The band can be a little wild onstage; Brewer hand-makes bikini tops which she wears onstage, and each top reflects her current mood. The band has gained some important followers; at SXSW 2016, Green Day's Mike Dirnt came to watch Purple's performance and he's been seen wearing Purple T-shirts during performances.
Though Purple can be pretty punk, the song "Pretty Mouth" itself is more laid-back and beachy than Purple's other songs.
