Ukrainian duo BLOOM TWINS have been announced to join Duran Duran for all of the band’s upcoming UK arena dates. Sonia and Anna Kuprienko are a new sound for a new generation. Growing up in a small town outside of Kiev, they moved to the UK last year to leave behind the political turmoil at home. Now based in London, they are able to pursue their unique musical vision.
Their intoxicating, individual sound – shaped by their unusual background and perspective – crosses over several genres of music. They fuse stylish electronica with haunting melodies, delivered in their distinctive vocal style, embellishing the sound with flute, harmonica and piano creating truly modern results.
After uploading their debut track ‘Fahrenheit’ to YouTube in 2013, Bloom Twins had a double impact on both music and fashion, opening the doors to numerous profile pieces in magazines such as Vogue, i-D, Paradigm and Numero. Since then, fashion elites including Wonderland, Hunger and Flaunt have heralded them further.
They are currently working on their debut album to be released in 2016 and have been in the studio co-writing with Duran Duran’s own Nick Rhodes, who has also produced the songs.
