Resting confidently within layers of synthesizers and demonstrative drums, The Decades EP, the debut release from Denver, Colorado based 888, rests a poignant and reoccurring message- “Don’t give up.” Throughout the course of the infectious Alternative-Electro EP, road-tested frontman Danny Stillman repeatedly reaffirms the significance and impact of staying the course. Regardless of life’s accomplishments and catastrophes, the band, rounded out by (keyboardist) Aaron Rothe and (drummer) Danny Cooper, defiantly accentuate the importance of continuing on. The Decades EP opening track and lead single “Critical Mistakes” professes “Come wake me up before I die and never get to live,” before adding “let the tide wash away my critical mistakes”. Unwilling to rest easy, 888 is pushing forward and reaching for more.

That tenacity bleeds through the entirety of their self produced EP. Combining the enlightenment that complements growing into our own skin, The Decades EP explores the drive to succeed and change in relationships that accompany this era of life.“Young and In Love” explores temporary infatuation and limitless possibility before life-altering responsibilities settle in. Each track solidifies the band’s impetuous intentions to live in the moment and to experience each occasion wholeheartedly. Placed impeccably over an ambiance of optimistic and animated orchestration, a contrast of hope and reality are flawlessly achieved. The band has come of age as a collective who’ve together spent over a decade conquering numerous styles of music in several different bands. The blending experience with personal growth in both musical taste and talents has culminated into a spry and animated explosion of sound.

“Critical Mistakes” has quickly turned heads, spreading internationally and become a top pick for prominent playlists. 888 are readied to manufacture beyond their previous success with Drop, Dead Gorgeous and Bleach Blonde, with The Decades EP situated to make 2016 their most prevalent year to date.
