A Sit Down With DJ Bombs Away

Bombs Away are a musical duo like no other in the Australian music scene; their longstanding career has earned them two platinum records for Super Soaker and Party Bass, gold for Big Booty Bitches, ARIA nominations, countless ARIA club chart top 10s, a #1 on the US viral charts, and have reached over a billion people with their music and videos online. However, it is now that Bombs Away are set to take the biggest step in their career to date, with the release of the first single Like You feat. Elle Vee, from their forthcoming debut album Fragments due early next year.

“Like You is a labor of love that has been a long time coming, we’ve included some familiar elements that will be recognisable to existing Bombs fans, but we’ve been working really hard to bring something that’s been inspiring us lately to life.”


What is your favorite part about being a Producer/DJ?

Making Music and writing songs is a way that helps us release expression. To be able to share that music with everyone and to get back positive responses is an incredible feeling. Like getting a message from someone on Facebook that tells us how our music helped them get out of a dark place in their life just inspires us and lets us know we are going in the right direction.

You guys have had huge success on your previous tours, both in Australia and overseas, what’s your favourite on tour memory so far?

When Creamfields, Future Music Festival, and Stereosonic were around those moments were always some of the best, but in general, we just like going to new places! We actually really love the regional shows we do around Australia, they always get really wild! We’re always on the road with friends so it’s just like one big party the whole time!

Moving forward what goals do you want to accomplish in the future?

Our goal is to shake up the EDM scene and to always give fans a great experience at our shows. We are starting to play bigger shows at larger festivals and that feeling is great. Next, we would love to start playing overseas and play some shows in Europe. We would also love to keep playing festivals in America like Coachella and EDC. Other than that we want to keep making great music and keep spreading the good vibes.

Have you guys ever had any issues traveling so much with your name?

Well, we used to have jerseys that said “Bombs Away,” and security would be all over us until we explained that we’re not, like…crazy bad guys. But yeah, it’s a thing that we’re coming across a bit. As soon as people see that it’s not like that, it’s okay. But when they read it, it’s different.

Do you prefer performing live or recording?

Definitely performing live, there’s no better feeling than having everyone party along with us!

Which is your favourite song to perform live and why?

Move On Up”has been one of the most in depth songs to play so far when it comes to vocal range. ‘Supersoaker’ is always a party starter but I’m really looking forward to playing ‘Like You’ out live and hearing Elle’s vocals shine!

Any exciting new projects coming up that you can share with us?

Right now the album has taken so much of our life writing and producing, that it’s great finally being able to tour it and see people react to the songs in real life, it’s amazing so that’s our project right now, experiencing how the FRAGMENTS album and all the singles go.

What would be your dream collaboration?

I think with collaborations it’s about just getting along with someone, ya know? There are some pretty cool people that we’ve worked with in the past, like…I’d say Potbelleez, but we’ve already done them. We actually have a track we’re working on with them, it’s gonna be huge! You have to take a lot of things into account. That’s a good question, a really good question!

What/who was your inspiration to go into the music industry?

Probably bands like Blink and Greenday, Offspring etc!
