October 28, 2022 – Released today on Armada Music, ‘Just Words’ is the latest single from Canadian brothers DVBBS. In the year that marks the duo’s tenth year of a ten year career so far, this immersive single is also their debut release on the Amsterdam-, New York- and London-based record label.
Fusing contagious piano chords and mellow organ plucks, ‘Just Words’ is rife with crossover potential. Inspired by the premise that actions speak louder than words, the lyrics are materialized by a delightfully pop style vocal, designed to hook listeners from the get-go. The overall production underlines just how versatile and infectious the duo’s approach to creating dance music truly is.
Composed of brothers Christopher van den Hoef and Alexandre van den Hoef, DVBBS have built a strong discography over their ten-year career so far, collectively garnering the group platinum sales in nearly a dozen countries and billions of streams to date. They have collaborated with artists such as Blackbear, Wiz Khalifa, 24kGoldn, Galantis, Quinn XCII, Martin Garrix, Aloe Blacc, Icona Pop, Benny Benassi, Steve Aoki, 2 Chainz, powfu, Alida, Cody Simpson, Johnny Orlando, YBN Nahmir, Roy Woods, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Cheat Codes, Juicy J, and Belly to name a few and gained international acclaim via their platinum-selling 2013 single ‘Tsunami’, which became the duo’s first-ever certified hit and counts over 1 billion streams today. The 2014 vocal mix of the track, ‘Tsunami (Jump)’ featuring English rapper Tinie Tempah, topped both the UK Singles and UK Dance charts, making DVBBS one of only thirteen Canadian artists to ever chart at #1 on the Official UK Singles chart. DVBBS also count twelve platinum singles via ‘Tinted Eyes’, ‘West Coast’, ‘IDWK’, ‘Tsunami’ and ‘Not Going Home’, the latter of which also received a Juno Awards nomination for Dance Recording of the Year. On the live front, DVBBS have performed across the world’s top festivals, including Lollapalooza, Creamfields, Tomorrowland, EDC, Ultra Music Festival and beyond.
