TUNE 88/89 - The Man
88/89 is a hybrid of synths, guitar riffs and sentimentalism. Formed in London, the duo is carving out a space between synch pop and psychedelic rock - creating a sonic landscape on their own.
'The Man' was mixed by Tom Rowkins (Maribou State, Mura Masa, Rina Sawayama) & mastered by Kevin Tuffy at Alchemy Mastering. Speaking on the release, Jack and Michael both cite that "Like all of our songs, 'The Man' was an organic process. It's all written around the drums and the baseline then, towards the end, we were like - "lets make it sound like Dead or Alive and New Order!". Lyrically we wanted to write something empowering and uplifting. The song isn’t about anyone in particular it’s about all of the people who have helped us become the people we are today."
