Nalum was PR I believe, there were plenty of receipts about it but anyway I just wanna remind people that HV are irrelevant and problematic, they did fucked up shit and now want to delete everything and start AGAIN a new "career".
I disagree, and I feel like the majority of those “receipts” are just reaches. Nalum was so lowkey and the only photos we really ever got from them were very, very LQ fan photos of them out and about, as well as with their families. We also never saw any of the typical tell-tale signs of PR, like there was very little interaction between them on social media. Hey Violet already had plenty of clout simply by association to 5SOS, I don’t think Nalum had to date to increase that any, and if that were the goal then I think they would have been way more public about things. To this day, people still debate about whether or not they actually even dated, that’s how lowkey they were.
That being said, I do agree with your second point. Their career is literally never going to be relevant, because they can’t stand on their own (without touring with 5SOS) and have too much known baggage that they can’t do away with. For example, their history with bullying Julia out of their own band, their support of sex offender Ian Watkins, their lyrics which romanticize and glorify toxic and inappropriate age gap relationships, and now the issue with former member Iain and the allegations currently surrounding him. They’re just a whole ass mess and there’s really no cleaning up their image, these issues will always follow them.
