Sinplus is a rock pop duo. Two brothers, Gabriel and Ivan Bro.
The brothers are from Locarno in the south of Switzerland. In the past years they have been achieving important results, thank to their talent and energy. In 2014 they won the prestigious MTV award for Best Swiss Act after having had a good-natured shot at the Eurovision Song Contest with their hit single „Unbreakable“. In 2016 they went Gold in their native country with the single “Tieniti Forte”. They lived in Vancouver, San Diego and Berlin. They have honed their skills while working in recording studios from Los Angeles to London, Zürich and Milan. And they also have years of live experience by touring in more than 15 countries in EU and opening for international acts, such as Roxette at the prestigious festival “Moon&Stars”.
“We’ve been in a band since we were kids“, says Ivan. In fact for these brothers, music has always been a family affair: their father is a passionate amateur musician and their sister is their manager.
If you think about alternative rock, power pop, a bit of disco and an ever so slight bit of reggae, you’re almost there. Sinplus ticket is a larger-than-life sound imbued with positivity, skyscraper melodies, big choruses and majestic solos that talk about freedom and self-assuredness. „If there’s a message to our songs it might be: There’s a power within you – go ahead and use it!“, Gabriel says. „Follow your wildest dreams“ or „Be yourself and do what you love“ would also work as a motto, because for Sinplus a positive attitude is key to their music.
The brand new album „This Is What We Are“ is a modern day soundtrack to unadulurated optimism, self-produced and written by the band themselves, with all the colours in the rainbow to testify.
“Y&I”, the second single to be taken from the record, features hotly-tipped singer-songwriter, Mickey Shiloh, a fresh-faced twenty-something who counts Kylie Jenner, Britney Spears and J.Lo as fans. Mickey also co-wrote Janet Jackson’s brilliant 2015 comeback single ‘Night’, before attending a songwriting camp to work on Rihanna’s revered ANTI record. Sinplus have absorbed everything that’s available to the experimental mind, rooted in the time-honed tradition of classic songwriting. Chances are, you know what they’re on about.
