Who are Eighty Ninety?
Eighty Ninety are a Brooklyn based duo consisting of brothers Abner and Harper James.
I stumbled across them on Alfitude and immediately loved their debut track ‘Three Thirty’.
I’ve been following their journey ever since and they have now released a new song from their forthcoming EP – ‘Bowery Beach Road’.
Take a listen to their latest track ‘Your Favorite Song’, you’ll soon agree it will be your new favorite and then see what the guys had to say for themselves when I asked them a few questions.
In one word – sum up how has your time been since we last spoke?
Glad to hear it! What’s the meaning behind your new song ‘Your Favourite Song’?
It’s about how a person and a song can become inseparable, and about how a person can even be like a song. A melody that carries you away. That person who makes you want to switch off shuffle and hit repeat.
Nice! I know a lot of people who I wish had a ‘skip’ button – maybe that can be your next song – oh and we won’t get into the debate about the missing ‘u’ in favourtie 🙂
What are your actual favourite songs?
Tough one. Right now:
I love them both!
It’s Autumn in the UK and I’ve just created this playlist what songs remind you of Autmun/Fall and I’ll add them in.
‘Saw You In A Dream’ – The Japanese House
‘You Don’t Know How It Feels’ – Tom Petty
‘Traveling Song’ – Ryn Weaver
Awesome! I couldn’t find the third one on Spotify but I’ve added in the other two.
Okay – share the last photo you took on your phone.
Harper on the guitar!
Share the last song you listened to on your phone.
I went to the USA for the first time this year and next on my bucket list of USA visits would be New York – can you share any hidden gems I should seek out?
The most recent venue we played was the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn — it’s one of our favorite places to see music as well. Check out a gig!
Great thanks for the recommendation! What’s the plan for the rest of the year?
‘Your Favorite Song’ is just the first single off our upcoming EP ‘Bowery Beach Road’ – we have a lot more around music, videos, and shows around the bend.
Thanks guys for answering my questions and I can’t wait to hear more new songs!
