Eighty Ninety – Got Your Message

If you’ve ever found the maturity to cast aside a suitor you recognized wasn’t the right fit, then you’ve already heard Eighty Ninety’s latest “Got Your Message.” That’s because their new alt-pop piece represents so strongly the remorseful concern in letting go of ill-suited love.

Second preview of the James brothers’ upcoming EP Bowery Beach Road, the cut thrives through their take on strings and stroke; an oscillation of fret and percussive stems build a sonorous soundscape for lead Abner’s own experienced words. Speaking on the track, they say:

We wanted to create a tension and push-pull dynamic between the verse and choruses that underscored the way you can make up your mind, start second guessing yourself, and get sucked back in.

I was lucky enough to catch this one live as they came through D.C. earlier this year so I can attest the emotion is just as palpable on the track as it was on stage that night.

But don’t take my word for it…
