Eighty Ninety Announce Debut Album & Share New Single “Ruins”

Overflowing with raw emotion and textured indie-pop production

Indie-pop duo Eighty Ninety announce their self-titled debut album, out December 15th, and share the album’s opening track, “Ruins,” out now on all streaming platforms.

Following a slew of singles – “The Hard Way,” “Face Like a Sunset,” “Stay Alive,” and “2 Carat” – “Ruins” arrives as the final single from the band’s highly-anticipated self-titled album. It’s a classic Eighty Ninety song, overflowing with raw emotion, textured indie-pop production, and Abner’s hauntingly beautiful vocals. 

“‘Ruins’’ is a reflection the past, the choices we didn’t make and the ‘what ifs’’that still linger,” Eighty Ninety explain. “We wanted to capture the ache of those missed opportunities and unspoken words, and to reflect on our youth and the ruins we all carry with us. The rest of the album also explores how we shape our lives on the foundations of those ruins and their enduring impact on who we become.”

Eighty Ninety is the project of Brooklyn-based brothers Abner (vocals, production) and Harper (guitar, production) James. They fuse intimate storytelling, sticky melodies, and minimalist pop productions built on acoustic instruments and electronic sounds in a style they call “808s and telecasters” — a shorthand for both their music and their anything-goes mentality in the studio. 

The band emerged in 2016 with their beloved debut EP, Elizabeth, which featured their viral hit “Three Thirty,” and have gone on to share numerous hit singles in the years since. Their music has resonated with fans and critics alike, amassing over 33 millions streams and praise from Alternative Press, Billboard and Ones To Watch. After much anticipation, the band’s 10-track LP, Eighty Ninety, will be out December 15th.
