Bombs Away is an Australian DJ vocal and producer duo consisting of Matthew and Thomas Coleman. They're best known for their top 40 2012 single "Party Bass".


Matthew and Thomas Coleman were born on the Gold Coast, Australia, before relocating to Perth early in their adult lives. They released their debut single "Big Booty Bitches" in 2010. The song reached number 3 on the Beatport Electro Top 100.[1] and has been viewed more than 3 million times on YouTube,[2] The song was certified gold in 2013. Their follow-up single "Swagger" was released in early 2011 and received national airplay on the Nova Network[3] and Austereo Radio Network.[4]

Bombs Away's third single "Super Soaker" was released in September 2011 and was certified platinum in 2012. In March 2012, they released a collaboration with DJ Kronic, titled "Looking for Some Girls", which reached number 7 on the ARIA Club Chart. Bombs Away's fifth single, "Get Stoopid", a collaboration with Seany B (the performer of the TV Rock single "Flaunt It"), was released in late 2012, and reached number 1 on the ARIA Club Chart[5] and was ranked number 27 in the Top 50 Club Tracks of 2012 on the ARIA Charts.[6] The majority of the film clip for "Get Stoopid" was filmed on the streets of Surfers Paradise, and featured cameo appearances from "The Twins" and DJ Kronic.
