California-Based Dance Music Duo Candyland Reunites For New Pop-Dance Anthem, ‘Bye!’

Back and better than ever before, California-based dance music duo Candyland returns to the release radar with their first official release of the year, ‘BYE!’. The latest to come from the pair directly follows their March 2022 single ‘Nirvana‘ which found a home on Monstercat. The electro-charge single doubled as Candylands first official release reunited as a duo and landed them a spot nestled within Monstercat’s Top 20 songs of 2022. Paving the way for an exciting new chapter of the Candyland saga, ‘BYE!’ is out now and available to stream across all platforms

Rising to prominence in the early 2010’s, Candyland gained notoriety as one of the promising acts in dance music. Their bassdrenched remixes of Skrillex’s ‘Make It Bun Dem’ and Bingo Player’s ‘Rattle’ garnered over 5 million streams on Soundcloud and saw the duo become the first act to win back-to-back Beatport remix contests. After years of successful releases finding homes on coveted labels including Spinnin’, Monstercat, and many more, as well as several tours across the United States, Josie Martin and Ethan Davis, as the two Candylandconstituents are known offstage, went their separate ways. Following Ethan’s departure, Josie continued to produce as a solo act under the Candyland moniker until announcing a brief hiatus. Following a 4-year period of dormancy, Candyland made a resurgence in March 2022 with their first official release reunited as a duo, ‘Nirvana’, garnering over one million streams on Spotify. Marking an exciting new era for Candyland, ‘Nirvana’ doubled as the duo’s 10 year anniversary celebration, offering listeners a delicious taste of what’s in store for Candyland 2.0.

In tandem with the release, Candyland unleashes an official music video paired alongside the infectious pop/dance anthem. Filmed with a retro-infused flair, the 3-minute long visual accompaniment brings the duo’s latest production to life, painting a lively, vibrant picture of the tune for listeners. Directed by Andrew Paul, the atmospheric music video features a nostalgic ambiance, honing in on Ethan Davis sitting in a vibrant room besides a rotary phone. Davis flawlessly delivers his enthralling vocals while Josie Martin is depicted on instrumental duty utilizing the guitar and a drum set. Flawlessly encapsulating the fun and up-beat nature of the track, the music video accompaniment evokes joy and excitement for viewers seeing the duo reunited – setting the tone for what’s coming next from Candyland 2.0.

Prevailing to bring die-hard fans and first time listeners further into their creative vision as the year unfolds, ‘BYE!’ serves as a stellar addition to Candyland’s blossoming discography. Paving the way for an exciting journey ahead for the duo, Candyland enters the next phase of their musical career – gearing up for a year jam-packed with sonically diverse offerings. The latest to come from the pair offers a taste of what they have in store for the year ahead, leaving listeners eagerly waiting for what’s coming next. With ‘BYE!’,  Candyland solidifies themselves as forces to be reckoned with in the dance music space, reaffirming fans that they are back and here to stay.
