D2UR blaze forth in their haunting, textured and sensory-laden new single and video Little Sunshine — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Co-fronted by Diane Ibister and Mike Ibister — plus Dave Sikorski-Thorn, John Colburn, and Stephen Broadhurst — the insatiable modern rock outfit bring their signature rhythms to the forefront in the anthemic riffi-rocker, making Little Sunshine as the latest in a trifecta of recent standouts.
“Little Sunshine spins a tale of deceit and lies,” Diane reveals. “It’s a rock n’ roll tale of abuse and sadness,” Mike adds. “Draped in bombastic rock layers, of course.”
Such sound is par for the course for the no-nonsense, fluff-free and straight-to-the-point singer-songwriters, who draw inspiration from the likes of Aerosmith, AC/DC, Rolling Stones, Whitesnake, and Sass Jordan, to name a few. It’s a sound these Winnipeg rockers are growing increasingly known for. Following their 2013 debut release Rev U Up, D2UR took a Top 25 spot in the 2014 CBC Searchlight competition, and a Top 10 finish in 2015; their single Losing Control earned 15th place in the CJIM Montreal Independent Rock Countdown in 2016. The band launched their sophomore offering, Tic Toc, in 2017. 2019 also included the release of singles Wild Ride and Where’s the Rocket.
