Sister act Bloom Twins, have unveiled their new single ‘Set Us Free’. The track is another perfect example of their ‘dark pop’, offering up haunting dual vocals set against pulsating electro beats.

Talking of the new single, the girls say “This track we co-wrote with the amazing and talented Fiona Bevan and Max McElligott. It was the first track we wrote after returning from the Ukraine where we got stuck for half a year during the uprising.”

The track is not political at all, rather a call for freedom, but it was certainly influenced by everything that was happening in the Ukraine and the fact that we couldn’t come back to our new home – London”.

To mark the end of the year, the girls have announced a headline show, at London’s Nambucca, following their packed out gig at Birthdays, Dalston, in July.

Their debut album, which has been recorded and produced by Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes, will be out in 2017.

Born and raised in a small town outside of Kiev in the Ukraine, 20-year- old identical twins, Sonia and Anna Kuprienko, were both classically trained. After releasing their debut track ‘Fahrenheit’ in 2013 Bloom Twins had a double impact on both music and fashion, opening the doors to profile pieces in publications such as Vogue, i-D, Wonderland, Hunger, The Guardian, Daily Mail, and The Sunday Times.

Over the last two years, Bloom Twins have continued to build their global presence in both music and fashion, playing live shows around the world and releasing a number of tracks – the most recent of which, ‘Amnesia’ was championed by The Independent, who premiered the video this summer.

Bloom Twins also completed arena tours of both the UK and Italy with Duran Duran in 2015 and 2016 respectively, and – newly signed with Models1 – they have just returned from Tokyo where they completed fashion shoots for Vogue, Elle, Harpers Bazaar and Numero Japan.
