SONG PICK: Bunny X – Young & In Love
Earlier this week, New York-based Synthwave/Italo disco duo Bunny X released their highly awaited debut album Young & In Love via Aztec Records. We dig all the tracks on the nostalgia-tinged and oh-so-dance-ready album and decided to feature the album’s title track, because -who doesn’t remember the feeling of being “Young & In Love?” Everything is still possible and yours for the taking and then life comes in between.
But before we get all doomy and gloomy, we rather quickly think back at August 2019, when Bunny X kicked off the glamglare party at Lower East Side’s Coney Island Baby, now East of Berlin. Little did we know that this would remain the last show we’ve curated -until now. We fondly remember that we could gather two hot Italy disco-style acts Bunny X and Late Guest At The Party, as well as the sensational Finnish electro-pop act Beverly Girl. A New York night to remember, including the heavy thunderstorm, but most importantly the sexy, dancefloor music and the friendly vibe all around.
Asked about “Young & In Love,” the album, Abigail says:
We wanted to take our listeners back to a time when music connected with us in a passionate and relatable way. These tracks pay tribute to what made 80s music so special – the fact that it was delivered in an earnest and unironic way.
The retro wave 10-track list of Young & In Love brings Bunny X together with synthwave stalwarts Sellorekt/LA Dreams and Don Dellpiero, NYC-based producer Gosteffects and GRAMMY award-winning engineer, Tony Lake.
