Exploring temporary infatuation accompanied with insurmountable heartbreak, the new single from the alt-rock band 888 entitled “Pins & Needles” is a powerful and evoking release. It features soaring electronic soundscapes, infectious melodies, and passionate vocals.
Resting confidently within layers of synthesizer and demonstrative drums, 888 gives the poignant and recurring message of not giving up on their EP ‘Critical Mistakes’ and their full-length ‘Everybody Can’t Complain’. Throughout the songs, regardless of life’s accomplishments and catastrophes, duo (Danny Stillman and Danny Cooper) accentuates the importance of staying the course. Based in Denver, Colorado, they are consistently pushing forward and actively reaching for more.
Combining enlightenment that complements growth in personal and emotional relationships, their new single explores the drive to succeed and change. Placed over an ambiance of optimistic and animated orchestration, a contrast of hope and reality are achieved. The duo has come of age as a collective while together spending over a decade conquering numerous styles of music in several different bands. The blending experience has culminated into an explosion of sound.
They won KTCL’s 2015 “Hometown For The Holidays” competition in fan voting and live performance categories, which cemented their pace in Denver’s music scene and garnered the attention of radio stations across the country. They have since headlined Alt Nation’s Advanced Placement Tour, opened for Andrew McMahon and The Rocket Summer, and secured festival appearances at summer staples like Lollapalooza, Firefly, Bottlerock, Austin City Limits, Hangout Music Festival, and more.
