10 May 2022 (Toronto, ON) – Today, Multi-Platinum producer-songwriters Banx & Ranx release the official music video for their new single “Headphones” featuring Rêve. Directed by Montréal cinematographer/director Patrick Antoniewicz, the video captures the nomadic lifestyle of Banx & Ranx who are just as often working with global artists in studios around the world as they are producing and writing with artists in their 31 East studio. Filmed in five cities, the video is a high energy kaleidoscope of culture from London, Paris, New York, Mexico City, and their hometown of Montréal, with Banx & Ranx and their music serving as the common thread.
"When we got the confirmation that we were working with Pat and saw his concept for the video, we were immediately hyped up,” say Banx & Ranx. “This is definitely going to be one of our biggest videos so far and we’re excited to share it with the world."

“Headphones” is the first single from Banx & Ranx since announcing their signing with Universal Music Canada. Upon release, “Headphones” has received praise from outlets such as Dancing Astronaut and Complex, has climbed into the Top 20 on the Canadian radio charts, and has landed the duo two of Canada’s most sought-after radio accolades with Banx & Ranx being crowned both the iHeartRadio Future Star and the Rogers One to Watch. Simultaneously, their previous collaboration with Rêve, the Gold certified single “CTRL + ALT + DEL” is currently climbing the Top 10 and has accumulated over 26 million global streams to date.
Banx & Ranx’s passion for artistic collaboration has reached new heights with their newly announced roles as Musical Directors for Cirque de Soleil’s exclusive event MŪV which launches in Andorra this July. Looking back at the greatest musical hits of recent years, MŪV is a participatory show featuring music remixed and reimagined by Banx & Ranx with “Headphones” serving as the official theme song. The partnership between Cirque de Soleil and Banx & Ranx, two Montréal-based, internationally established brands, has stimulated inspiration across the creative worlds of choreography, acrobatics, and musical production.
