2021 has been bliss for the Bloom Twins who have been commended for their collaborative artistry, with BBC noting them as Game Changers on socials. The duo have also shared an official remix from renowned duo SOFI TUKKER via Armada Music, for their original track with Jan Blomqvist titled ‘High On Beat’. The Ukraine sisters Anna and Sonya Kuprienko are charming vocalists that carry any track with conviction in their delivery. The SOFI TUKKER remix once again proves that the Bloom Twins have the adaptable vocals for the ever-changing electronic music landscape. We wait in anticipation to see what this versatile duo have in the works moving forward, but until then we chatted with the sisters Bloom Twins and discovered that they are comfortable in their skin.
Tell us about your earliest musical memory?
Before we could speak, we started to sing. We would copy every sound we could hear. Our parents felt a strong need to put us in the music school because it was the first language we picked up.
At what point in your life did you have that moment where you said to yourself “This is it. This is the type of music I want to create?”
I’m not sure which genre I want to create, I just know which emotion I want to deliver. Looking at the blank canvas I don’t really know where it’s gonna take me, I just fill it in step by step. The songwriting process is a mystery – the beauty of the unknown.
Please list some of the most influential albums on your creative outlook and output:
The Velvet Underground & Nico.
This year has seen you collaborate on several dance singles with globally renowned music producers. What are the highlights of these experiences so far?
It’s crazy to think that it all came to life with the help of Instagram. In a new digital era, you’re only one DM away from connecting with literally anyone. We messaged Benny Benassi, Jan Blomqvist, Sofi Tukker and they all responded that they like our music. It feels so great to have such feedback from such iconic electronic artists!
What inspires you outside of music? What do you turn to when the creative well runs a little low?
We love fashion and how it comes together with music. Seem like one can’t exist without the other. Like my twin and I.
Studio work and music creation or performing and interacting with a live audience, what do you prefer?
Studio work and performing are just such different sides to music. One could turn you into an introvert and another into an extrovert. It makes it hard to compare the two. I must admit coming out of the lockdown makes me excited about performing but equally terrified.
As a music artist, it becomes apparent that there is a huge difference between the art and the business. Is there anything about the music scene that you would personally change?
We should support the differences rather than fitting into the existing genres. We were also asked to fix our accents as otherwise wouldn’t be favored and played on the radio stations. We don’t think it is necessary, we should all be proud of our upbringing and where we are from.
Any new or upcoming artists on your radar? Who shouldn’t the world sleep on?
Absolutely in love with Jelani Blackman’s work! He recently released a track with the Gorillaz and it’s doing really well!
Can you describe the feeling of having the original track reworked by SOFI TUKKER?
We are thrilled! We absolutely love the new direction SOFI TUKKER chose for this track. We believe all good songs can be redone in many different ways and it’s amazing when the same song can evoke different feelings.
What can we expect from you in the near future? Any upcoming projects or gigs in the pipeline that you would like to tell us about?
At the moment we’re concentrating on writing as many tracks as possible. We have tons of features that we worked on during the lockdown, cannot wait to share them with you all.
One last thought to leave your fans with?
Don’t ever give up even when no one believes in you. Write as many tracks as possible, experiment with different genres. This way you will come up with something new! Impress yourself and you will impress others. Do it because you love doing it and not because of other reasons.
