Most brother and sister relationships start with childlike wonder, grow into hair pulling and teasing, followed by grudging (or regular) respect, all with love flowing beneath, around and sometimes even above the surface. Sibling duo Midaz & Ellie added music to that usual mix, and the results are pretty freakin’ awesome. Need proof? Well we’ve got it for you in the form of their brand spankin’ new music video for their latest single “Down Together” that you’ll see first right here on Addicted!
Hailing from Quebec, Midaz & Ellie’s first single “Live it up” skyrocketed them to pop stardom in their home province. From topping the radio charts to opening for music powerhouses like Steve Angello, Kardinal Offishall, Bran Van 3000 and LMFAO, this pair’s infectious tunes and fun loving live performances are already living the dream. And best of all? They’re on that journey together. “I get to work with someone that I am biologically programmed to love. Sure sometimes there is some sibling rivalry, but at the end of the day we are each other’s accomplices” confesses big sister Ellie. Accomplices in life and in music. “The concept of the song “Down Together” is great because it’s universal. In our case it’s making a point about siblings having each other’s back no matter what. It’s about knowing that there’s a person out there who would be willing to sacrifice their own well being to experience things on the same level as you. ‘If we’re going down, we’re going down together!'”
To make their brand new video Midaz & Ellie travelled to beautiful Turks and Caicos to infuse their heartwarming song with some tropical sunshine. From Midaz’s perspective, it’s just one of the perks of the job: “That’s what I enjoy the most about this experience. Travelling for work, and capturing our trip as a souvenir we can use for our music!” “Surrounded by the sand, the sun and the ocean. It was paradise! We got to tease people on social media posting pictures of beautiful beach sunsets saying, “just another day at the office!” If Ellie wasn’t so cute AND talented, we’d just have to be jealous.
