FRESH: ‘Dream’ – Eighty Ninety

Presenting US duo Eighty Ninety’s latest, intimate and introspective single “Dream”.

Brooklyn-based indie-pop duo Eighty Ninety have recently launched their bright and effervescent single “Dream”. Based out of Brooklyn, New York, Eighty Ninety is the project of two brothers, Abner (vocals, production) and Harper (guitar, production). Their music fuses intimate storytelling, sticky melodies, and minimalist pop productions built on acoustic instruments and electronic sounds in a style they like to call “808s and telecasters”.

Combining Abner’s signature hazy vocals, with introspective lyricism and forward-thinking production, Eighty Ninety’s latest offering, “Dream”, is an instantly catchy pop tune that is sure to delight listeners. It has been described as “a shimmery, intoxicating sound that will easily melt into a playlist of summer vibes”.

2018 is quickly proving to be a momentous year for Eighty Ninety. The duo kicked off the year with Taylor Swift adding their single “Your Favorite Song” to her ‘Songs Taylor Loves’ Spotify playlist. In March the Brooklyn band made their SXSW debut and were named as breakout acts to watch by tastemakers such as Ladygunn and Indie Shuffle. Following their SXSW success, Eighty Ninety were recently poached to open for Des Rocs at Elsewhere on June 18th.

Eighty Ninety’s music has been quickly gaining fans and supporters from the very beginning. Their break out single “Three Thirty”, catapulted to #2 on Spotify’s Global Viral Charts and was followed by their debut EP “Elizabeth”, which was supported heavily by Spotify and tastemakers alike. The brothers returned at the end of 2017 with “Your Favorite Song”, which was also remixed by Island Record’s budding electro-pop duo, Loote. To date, the duo have racked up over 18 million Spotify streams and have received praise from Alternative Press, Huffington Post, Galore, Ladygunn and Ones To Watch, among others.

Eighty Ninety’s unique twist on indie-pop is quickly catapulting the Brooklyn brothers on to the map and even Taylor Swift is taking notice!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
