live’n’loud: Meet Cream­fields stars Bombs Away ..................

Chevron Is­land duo Bombs Away are tak­ing the dance world by storm, writes

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY CONTENTS -

MOVE over Stafford Broth­ers – an­other mu­si­cal Gold Coast fam­ily is primed for world dom­i­na­tion. Bombs Away – aka Chevron Is­land broth­ers Sketch and Thomas Hart – have been hand-picked to share the stage with the world’s No. 1 DJ, David Guetta, as part of the Cream­fields Fes­ti­val na­tional tour, which plays Parklands Show­grounds in May.

Fresh from a month-long US tour, the dub­step-elec­tro-house-club duo played a gig at Shoot­ers Night­club, in Surfers Par­adise, ear­lier this month.

‘‘Ev­ery­thing aside, we just want to party,’’ Sketch says.

The duo will re­turn to the US later this year to record with rapper, singer­song­writer and pro­ducer Pit­bull.

While their Cream­fields fes­ti­val set will see them per­form in DJ mode, Bombs Away have been work­ing on an ‘‘or­ganic’’ live show for a round of club gigs.

‘‘We are both mu­si­cians and both play in­stru­ments, so we are bring­ing that back to that stage,’’ Sketch says.

‘‘It’s a dy­namic live show. We do stage div­ing and jump out.

‘‘We try to make a party so we can join it af­ter we play.’’

Cream­fields’ Face­book fans have voted Bombs Away the fes­ti­val’s most an­tic­i­pated act.

‘‘It was crazy for us to be ranked first next to peo­ple like David Guetta and Dead­mau5, but it was re­ally cool to see sup­port from Aus­tralians,’’ Sketch says.

‘‘We were sur­prised to see it and the pro­mot­ers were a bit shocked. ‘‘It made them pay at­ten­tion to us.’’ In­spired by a sticker on the back of a tow truck, Sketch says the broth­ers’ stage name Bombs Away de­fines the duo per­fectly.

‘‘It’s such a great name. It means ev­ery­thing, like it’s about to drop – let’s party,’’ he says.

‘‘It’s a motto we take with us on tour. We want to make peo­ple party with us.’’

Sketch says tour­ing the US was a crazy ex­pe­ri­ence.

‘‘We did so many shows – al­most ev­ery sin­gle day,’’ he says.

Bombs Away, David Guetta, Above & Be­yond, Dirty South, Alesso, W&W, Giuseppe Ot­ta­viani, Con­gorock, Vi­talic, Sied van Riel, Tri­tonal, Down­link, Shock­one, MARLO, MC Stretch and more play Cream­fields, at Parklands Show­grounds, on May 6. Tick­ets are on sale via Moshtix.
