On the 10-year anniversary of their epic rise to fame with 9 x platinum-certified 2013’s “Tsunami” DVBBS goes back to the underground with their brand new release “Breathe.”
The duo teams up on it with Jesse Jo Stark of the Chrome Hearts fashion family and one of the brand’s lead designers, which sets the stage with a deep, driving beat in its opening notes. Combining Jesse’s mesmerizing, haunting vocal riffs with eerie soundscapes and minimal percussion, DVBBS steers the ship straight into the sonic underground with a breathtakingly sinister drop that’s simply designed for dark club dance floors as well as big main stages of festivals across the globe. “Breathe” sees them returning to their roots with the same sound that catapulted them to global stage with “Tsunami” a decade ago, with has since amassed several platinum and gold certifications worldwide, peaked charts in almost 20 countries, and made DVBBS a household name. Jesse Jo Stark explores new ground with “Breathe,” which sees her departing from her usual alt-pop wheelhouse and looking after the creative side of Chrome Hearts. Stark also designed all of the aesthetic fashion in the track’s accompanying music video. Read on for more about the track from the artists themselves.
“Since we put out our first global hit – ‘Tsunami,’ 10 years ago, everything that happened afterward was a wild ride. From releasing original and collaborative dancefloor fillers with the likes of Martin Garrix, Tiësto, Major Lazer, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike to having all the DJs supporting our music to selling out our own shows and worldwide tours where we performed in front of millions of our fans throughout the years, to being in constant rotation on radio airwaves globally, we’ve got to the point where we can do what we want while staying independent. After a stream of successful radio and crossover releases during the past years with the likes of Blackbear, Kane Brown, Wiz Khalifa, Quinn XCII, 2 Chainz, Aloe Blacc & Cody Simpson, to name a few, it’s time we go dive deep to the underground where everything started for us, our fans & our team. We are stoked about bringing Jesse Jo Stark with us. She’s one of the dopest upcoming acts with a voice & presence that will take you down full journey into her world of melody, fashion & rock n roll… and let me tell you her world is like nothing that you have experienced before. We are looking forward to what the next 10 years will bring.” – DVBBS
