Eighty Ninety Celebrate Temporary Beauty with “Face Like a Sunset”


What is it about nature that draws us in? Is it the stillness on display? The openness? The idea of something bigger than yourself? There are a lot of reasons to fall in love with our surroundings, especially when we know that these settings are only temporary. On Eighty Ninety’s new release, “Face Like a Sunset,” the indie pop duo of Harper and Abner James celebrate the beauty of natural yet fleeting situations, such as a sunset, comparing them to relationships.

It may be strange to hear someone compare a face to a sunset, but Eighty Ninety are proud to do so. On their new single, they appreciate all the little moments shared with someone, wanting these moments to last a lifetime. Much like a sunset, in the way it casts such a glow in a brief amount of time, relationships have their time limits but are worth the investment. To go along with this pleasant sentiment, Abner and Harper create an upbeat indie pop production that is as loving and joyful as the relationship they describe. Vocalist Abner James sings, “Move my t-shirts out the way / We need to make some room / Just tell me that you’re gonna stay / I wanna change my life with you.” You can check it out below.

Telling us more about “Face Like a Sunset,” Abner shares,

“It’s a song about the little moments when you realize you’re falling in love and how the very moment you realize you want to spend forever with someone, you begin to feel the press of time. A sunset is beautiful partly because you know it won’t last.”

With “Face Like a Sunset,” we get closer to the release of Eighty Ninety’s debut LP, due out later this year. For now, you can check out the single, along with previous releases like “Stay Alive” and “2 Carat” on platforms like SoundCloud, Apple Music, and Spotify.
