Brunettes Shoot Blondes is an indie rock band based in Kiev, Ukraine. After having released several music videos the band has been called an Internet sensation and has been covered by media such as Billboard, Yahoo!Music, The Daily Mirror, USA Today, BBC, Rolling Stone Brasil and many others. Their self-directed music video on a song “Knock Knock” went viral, collecting over 10 mln views on YouTube and winning the best concept at Berlin Music Video Awards Festival 2015. Their next work Bittersweet became a part of Opel car manufacturer’s advertising campaign.
After releasing the first EP "Bittersweet", the band has performed on the X Factor, supported Hurts and The Neighbourhood, played shows in the biggest European festivals: Sziget (Hungary), Colours of Ostrava (Czech Republic), MOST (Belarus), Atlas Weekend and Hedonism Fest (Ukraine).
In 2018 the band released EP and music video Hips. It was supported by Apple Music, and appeared on the front page of the service in more than 14 countries. Moreover, the music video for Hips was released to critical acclaim, receiving Best Music Video honors from the Los Angeles Film Awards.
For the latest video Brunettes Shoot Blondes designed a unique music instrument packed with a whole orchestra & performed their new song “Houston” live.
The band brought a broken, vintage grand piano to life, by reengineering it into a hybrid, containing 20 instruments in it. The musicians came up with an idea of making a true analog apparatus which could play different instruments nested inside the rim just by playing the keys. So when pressing a key, the piano hammers beat a marimba, tambourine, cymbals or even castanets. There are also special mechanical devices that allow for the playing of cello, violins and organ.
Houston song went to the final of the Ukrainian National Selection for Eurovision 2019.
