American/Australian production team RIP Youth was formed by three songwriters with extensive experience in penning hits for other artists, translating their intuitive creativity and widespread connections into a smash new project. Founded by longtime best-friends Dylan Bowes and James Maas, they were joined by Tommy Shades of multi-platinum selling Bombs Away after collaborating with them on their debut single “You Love”.
“You Love” is a feel-good, empowering anthem featuring the soulful hit singer-songwriter, Reigan (Sony Music Ent). The euphoric electro-pop single quickly became a hit picking up major radio support all over Australia along with an official remix from Italian DJ Molella. Notching over 400,000 streams on Spotify the track hit #15 on Music Week’s Commercial Pop Chart.
RIP Youth tapped into utterly anthemic territory on their sophomore single “Fake”. Featuring bold vocals from singer-songwriter Ranger, the new single is pure ear candy with booming pop production and irresistible melodies to match.
The group is supported “Fake” with a music video featuring choreography and an appearance from Abby Lee Miller. Founder of the Abby Lee Dance Company, the well-known dance instructor is one of America’s most widely recognized TV faces for her work on Dance Moms. In the last few years Abby’s been through a lot of personal hardships, but now she’s back to what she’s doing best – choreography.
Premiered via KIIS 1065 following an exclusive interview with The Kyle & Jackie O Show, Abby Lee Miller explained how she got involved with the project and made her return to the choreography game.
“Well [RIP Youth] are crazy, number one, they’re very fun and I’ve been trying to get back into the choreography-side of things…they wanted cheerleaders, and I have an amazing publicist Amanda, she’s from Australia and she said “would you like to do this video? They’re going to put you in it with a little cameo, but they need choreography done.”
So I called Gianna Martello my right-hand and said “hey let’s do this video”. We grabbed a few kids to train with us and threw them in the video and it came out really great! The kids worked so hard!” – Abby Lee Miller
With the release of “Fake”, RIP Youth look to continue establishing exciting new highlights in 2021 and beyond. Be sure to follow the group online for info on more upcoming music and collaborations they have planned.
