New Music: The One Eighties

The One Eighties is the new musical project of American artists Autumn Brand and Daniel Cook.

If they already look familiar to you, it might be because of the fact that these two talents were formerly part of acclaimed outfit New Reveille (explore here), who were praised by the likes of New York Times, Rolling Stone and Billboard.

The duo have just released a fresh new single called ‘Two Jet Planes’, and it’s simply sublime. By fusing elements of Americana with indie and pop, the track feels sincere, heartfelt and emotive. Elaborating on its lyrical inspiration, Brand and Cook explain:

“‘Two Jet Planes’ is about two people getting lost together in their own little world and drifting further and further into the abyss. They begin to wonder whether they’ll ever land or if they even want to. The song questions which is more important, the journey or destination. But there’s also the idea of not wanting to get so lost that you lose yourself and can’t find your way back. We imagine that these two people will drift forever.”

You can catch The One Eighties performing at Kings Raleigh on 25th August – details here. Debut album ‘Minefield’ is out on the 18th August (pre-order here).
