Recorded in Toronto and produced by Grammy-nominated and JUNO-winning production duo, Banx & Ranx (Dua Lipa, Sia, Little Mix, Sean Paul), “Big Boom” is an energetic body of work that is bound to ignite the dance floor. The song was also co-written by the production duo, Rêve and Peter Hanna (Robin Schulz, Little Mix, Chainsmokers). The track releases at the beginning of Pride Month with Rêve performing at this year’s Toronto Pride Festival on June 23 and fans will be eager to jump on the dancefloor to celebrate all month.
“Big Boom is a song Banx & Ranx and I wrote with the summer in mind,” says Rêve. “In many ways, Big Boom is CTRL + ALT + DEL’s angsty, younger sister. It’s an anthem made for sweltering nights where the vibe is high surrounded by the people you love.”

Montreal-born, Toronto-based singer-songwriter Briannah Donolo aka Rêve (“dream” in French) was discovered when her performance of the national anthem at a Canadiens de Montréal game went viral. The last few years have seen her develop her sound with the likes of Joel Stouffer (Carly Rae Jepsen, Dragonette), among others. Rêve intends to create the soundscape that lives in her mind: playful, pop, and R&B influenced dance music that draws its inspirations from the heydays of 90s sophisticated Euro sound. Her major-label signing with Universal Music Canada acts as the first collaboration with Montreal production duo Banx & Ranx (Dua Lipa, Sean Paul, BLACKPINK and more), who co-sign her with UMC.
