Eighty Ninety Releases New Song “Better as Friends”
- Brooklyn-based alt-pop brothers duo Eighty Ninety unveiled a new song “Better as Friends” on October 16, 2020.
The track is the second single off of their upcoming sophomore EP, following “Happier” released back in August.
The song features '80s and '90s contemporary pop sound vibe. It was written by Gian Stone, Harper James and Abner James.
The duo said of the song, “It's about the desire to live in the past rather than face the end, and how loving someone can mean wanting the best for them even if that no longer includes you.”
The duo worked with Grammy-nominated producer Gian Stone for the EP. Their songs fuse intimate storytelling, sticky melodies, and minimalist pop productions built on acoustic instruments and electronic sounds in a style they call “808s and telecasters”
They said, “We let the emotional arc of the song, rather than any set of genre conventions, lead us to instruments and sounds.”
The EP is expected to be released later this year.
