Australian duo Stafford Brothers make their debut on Purple Fly with “I Miss You,” a dance-pop remake of Blink 182‘s classic song of the same title. The original was a staple of teenage angst and an anthem for unrequited love, and Stafford Brothers kept the emotional turbulence of the vocals while adding breezy and organic instrumental melodies for a lighter touch. The single shows them exploring different sounds after their major hit track “Hello” feat. Lil Wayne & Christina Milian on Cash Money Rec., which achieved an international breakthrough and went triple Platinum, enabling the brother-duo to later collaborate with the likes of Lil Yachty, T.I., Waka Flocka Flame, Rick Ross, and more.
