Sunrise in the Desert is an Electronic Pop duo whose self-titled debut EP is a unique and fresh combination of dreaminess and grit. Reminiscent of fuzzy Euro Pop Rock, their single 'Bang Bang' is a late night club stomper that's sure to get you up and dancing.
In August of 2016, 'Bang Bang' was featured in a CBC nationwide Olympic Montage about Usain Bolt (TV and Web). The YouTube video quickly surpassed 20,000 views and it was included in the Y108 Rocks weekly indie show along with Sloan's 'Summer's My Season'. With this momentum, Sunrise in the Desert were invited for an official showcase performance at SXSW, 2017.
After receiving FACTOR funding for a series of new recordings, the duo released their single ‘Victory’ in the spring of 2018, and their music video ‘Tonight’ was chosen as an official selection for the imagineNATIVE film festival in Toronto where it screened at the TIFF Bell Lightbox along with Buffy Sainte-Marie’s, ‘The War Racket’.
In 2018, Sunrise in the Desert licensed their songs ‘Bang Bang’ and ‘Dance All Night’ for the feature film ‘Vox Lux’ starring Natalie Portman and Jude Law with original music by Sia. The film made its international debut at the Venice Film Festival and its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. The picture was bought by Neon Films and released in December, 2018. The duo’s single ‘Better Days’ was also featured in the Season 2 premier of the NBC Universal television series ‘Good Girls’.
Sunrise in the Desert are currently preparing to release their upcoming singles ‘So Radical’ and ‘Drowning’ this summer.
