Eighty Ninety — the NYC based alt-pop project of brothers Abner (vocals, production) and Harper (guitar, production) James — share their new single, Better as Friends.
Production-wise, it’s brilliant. Sounds are everywhere. Eighty Ninety creates an atmosphere. This is some cool work.
Better as Friends uses deeply personal lyrics to connect with universal themes and feelings, exploring the powerful pull to stay connected with someone you once loved despite how painful it can be. “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,” Abner and Harper write.
Eighty Ninety make really good music. Better as Friends deserves to be heard. So fantastic!
