Blast first found The Fire and Reason in April 2007, and we knew they were going to be big. This weekend the electro-pop duo became the first unsigned act to win the NEWNOWNEXT “Brink of Fame Award,” beating out indie sensations Lykke Li and Morningwood for the honor.
The Fire and Reason also made their TV performing debut at the awards, performing their new single “Do It Again.”
The award indicates big things for the Brooklyn-based duo that first became famous for their remix of “NME.” Originally from Brazil and Ecuador, The Fire and Reason’s Bella Saona and Steve Narvaez embrace their multicultural appeal and are always proud to represent their Latin roots, whether they are singing in English, Spanish, or Portuguese.
The awards will be airing throughout the rest of the month but you can see their performance and acceptance speech here.
