A Conversation with Sunset + Mine Mark-Xtreme
sunset + mine bursts into the light as the new project of husband and wife duo Valerie and Rocco Repetski. Drawn together by music, the Washington DC-area couple craft a refreshing and upbeat perspective of love and relationship through a novel revelation of their own marriage journey. sunset + mine tracks are rife with compelling lyrics, bright synths, and a youthful enthusiasm that belies the decade they’ve spent performing as a married couple.
January 14th, 2022 heralds the release of sunset + mine’s debut single ‘Honey Let’s Go”, a breezy, sing-at-the-top-of-your-lungs anthem that journeys through the blossoming of Valerie and Rocco’s romance and explodes with the wonder of young love, sheer joy and hopeful adventure only imaginable from a couple who grew up a mile apart, fell in love over impromptu jam sessions and now travel the world together. Los Angeles-based producer Ian Charlie (of Walla) combines a modern approach to highlighting Valerie’s gentle, smooth vocals and Rocco’s hook-laden melodies with driving beats and a catchy synth pop instrumentation that takes off from beat one. The track resounds with fans of Owl City, Colbie Caillat, and Lauren Daigle.
For years, Valerie and Rocco have longed to release a pop project together, taking that leap in 2021 with a series of recording sessions in Los Angeles to create the countercultural breath of fresh air that is sunset + mine. They can’t wait to make you smile!
