88/89 Drop Versatile New EP Hit Me

88/89 pack quite the punch with their latest EP, Hit Me. The EP showcases their expertise in the blending of psychedelic-pop and indietronica genres. The London duo utilizes strong melodies and riffs which are reminiscent of artists such as New Order, Tame Impala, and Glass Animals. The entire EP gives you feelings of nostalgia and euphoria. It’s an escape to those feel good days of summer and puts a smile on your face anytime you give it a listen.

“The EP is about love, connection, and misunderstandings. Although the style of the songs is different, we wanted to find a journey in the order.” – 88/89

Hit Me opens up with “The Man” a song which starts off with a thumping bass line and guitar melody which grabs the listeners attention. 88/89 then enters in with their synthesized vocals which adds an element of exuberance to an already groovy track. “The Man”  is a must add to anyone’s playlist as it exhibits the greatness of this duo. To highlight another song “Different Stages” has a melody that makes me feel like I’m playing my favorite arcade game which works in harmony with 88/89’s vocals. The song talks about love connections and misunderstandings which are common themes throughout the entire project. The EP features a dynamic track list with a set of fast paced songs such as “The Man” and “Hit Me” and slower paced songs such as “Different Stages” and “Wide Open. This contrast in pacing works perfectly and appeals to a wide range of listeners.
