Pioneering a trail of their own once again, Young Bombs release a new single entitled “High Road” featuring Robinson today. Get it BELOW via Astralwerks.
This time around, the critically acclaimed duo—Tristan Norton and Martin Kottmeier—fuse dreamy electronics, fluttering flourishes, and country flavors over a slick beat. Buzzing New Zealand pop songstress Robinson carries an uplifting and undeniable hook, “You take the road, baby, I’m grateful for you.” Additionally, the pair share an accompanying lyric video. The boys quite literally “cowboy up” as they go west in the video, wrangling up a few laughs in the process. Watch it BELOW.
Of the new tune, Young Bombs poignantly declare, “Our whole lives, we used to take the low road. Over the past year, we began taking the middle road. On April 3, 2020, we will finally begin taking the high road.”
The track arrives hot on the heels of the breakout “Better Day” featuring Aloe Blacc. So far, it has tallied over 5 million Spotify streams and counting. In addition, it vaulted to #10 at Top 40 Radio in Canada where it continues to hold strong. They also kicked off 2020 with a remix package for the tune, enlisting the talents of Cassette Tapes, Dillistone, No Thanks, Badjokes, and Shizz Lo.
Blurring the lines between EDM and country like never before, Young Bombs soar on “High Road.”
In 2019, Young Bombs made the bold leap from sought-after remixers to artists. That leap remained driven by a personal and creative chemistry forged way back in the Vancouver high school where they became best friends. With nearly 100 million streams in four years, the duo of Martin and Tristan cooked up 53 remixes by 2018. Along the way, they lent their talents to everyone from Nick Jonas, Selena Gomez, and Lady Gaga to Billie Eilish, Alessia Cara, Post Malone, Khalid, and Bazzi. In addition, they attracted the support of Tiësto, Kygo, and Don Diablo. Simultaneously, they graced the stages of blockbuster festivals such as Lollapalooza, Ultra, Firefly Music Festival, and the Billboard Hot 100 Festival. Not to mention, Young Bombs supported The Chainsmokers, Galantis, Diplo, and Alesso on tour around the globe and launched a coveted residency at Drai’s Beachclub in Vancouver.
New Zealand-born pop artist Robinson releases her debut EP Watching You. The dreamy brand of heartbreak pop Robinson is known for resonates throughout the record. Robinson says Watching You is a helping hand for the heartbroken and hopes, “it will give people comfort if they are going through the same thing,” branding the EP her most personal work to date. The EP follows on from Robinson’s previous singles “Medicine,” “Karma” and the hugely successful “Nothing To Regret,” which is certified platinum in New Zealand and double platinum in Australia. Robinson also received two nominations at the 2019 New Zealand Vodafone Music Awards for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Single of the Year. She was also revealed as one of Vevo DSCVR’s One’s to Watch 2019 as well as one of YouTube’s Artists to Watch 2019. Last year saw Robinson play some great shows, including a sold-out headline set at London’s Queen Of Hoxton and performances at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival & SXSW. She also supported some amazing artists on tour such as Hayley Kiyoko, Lany, Dean Lewis and Dermot Kennedy.
