Full Bio

From the first moment The Sunset Kids sat down together with a keyboard and a guitar, the music clicked. There were no growing pains, no creative struggles — just pure musical chemistry.

The duo’s alchemical electro-pop collaboration began with a humble recording session. Almost immediately, they began working on original material, and the songs poured out of them. Blending the blissful electronic blur of ‘80s dream pop with the giddy rush of modern folk rock, they instinctively developed a unique hybrid sound that overflows with catchy choruses and heart-on-sleeve emotions.

The duo’s debut album is Volcano, a rapturous outpouring of intensely personal lyrics and humble hooks. The 10 tracks range from towering pop anthems (“Ocean Clear,” “Brave”, “I Wanna Be”) to heart-swelling acoustic reveries (“Volcano,” “Atmosphere”) to dreamy, cinematic new wave (“Fantasy,” “Kingdom”). Each new stylistic direction is tied together by The Sunset Kids self-production, the propulsive rhythms from guest drummer Ali Siadat (Mother Mother), and the duo’s note-perfect duet vocals.

Their once-in-a-lifetime musical connection shines through whenever Josh and Ellaya sing together. It’s a strange and wonderful twist of fate that brought together a producer from Canada and a songwriter from Siberia, so The Sunset Kids are making the most of every second of it.
