    • Sunset Bros & Bianca Team Up On New Hit ‘Firestorm’ sunset-bros-bianca-firestorm-feature

      Legendary Sydney duo Sunset Bros have filled dancefloors across the world with their distinct sound – a fusion of hard house, house, techno and trance that’s seen them sell out shows across the country and garner over 40 million streams. Today the duo unleash their explosive new single ‘Firestorm’ featuring Bianca on Hussle Recordings, a heavy-hitter set to be an instant fan favourite. ‘Firestorm’ follows on from Sunset Bros’ huge collab with Hooligan Hefs and SCNDL, ‘Take Off’, which crossed over onto national radio in Australia, garnering a full addition to triple j. Sunset Bros explain the process behind their new single ‘Firestorm’, “We envisioned a unique blend of mysterious and euphoric vocals mixed with a banging hybrid of psy, NRG and hardstyle. We hope you love it as much as we loved making it.” Vocalist and co-writer Bianca adds, “I’m so excited for this track with Sunset Bros to come out! We’ve done a bunch of shows together and they’re amazing to work with so it’s awesome that we can show everyone what we’ve been doing. The song is about being stuck in this horrible headspace and feeling like nothing will ever bring you back, but then someone comes along and pulls you out of it, shows you that they care and you’re worthy of happiness. It lights a fire inside and you work even harder towards achieving what you want in life.” Very few producers are able to make an impact as lasting as the Sunset Bros. Over the course of their career, Sunset Bros have garnered over 40 million streams for their releases, including recent collabs with the likes of Ben Nicky, Hooligan Hefs and more. 2017 was a milestone in Sunset Bros’ journey, with the release of their viral hit ‘I’m Feelin’ It (In The Air)’. The single has amassed over 25 million streams, with radio support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Ireland’s Cool FM and Scotland’s Clyde 1 as well as remixes from MaRLo, Code Black and Tigerlily. Having performed at some of Australia’s most respected festivals and nightclubs, including playing the mainstage of Ultra, Sunset Bros have supported some of the most in-demand and highest-selling entertainers in the world, including The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, Calvin Harris, Armin van Buuren, Cosmic Gate and Giuseppe Ottaviani. The duo has also sold out renowned venues like Sydney’s Enmore Theatre, Metro Theatre and ivy with their own high energy headline shows. For ‘Firestorm’, Sunset Bros have enlisted the vocals of Sydney singer/songwriter​​Bianca, after previously joining forces to take the stage at Festival X and Sunset Bros sold out Enmore Theatre show in 2019. With over half a million YouTube followers and millions of streams to her name, Bianca is no stranger to dance hits, with songwriting and feature credits for the likes of Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, Tyron Hapi, Will Sparks and Joel Fletcher, and seeing global support for ‘Focus’ with Bonka, which hit #1 on the ARIA Club Chart, #18 on the Billboard Dance charts and set dancefloors alight around the world.
