Though it’s been well over a year since we first heard Critical Mistakes, I’m still very much inextricably stuck on 888′s synth rocking single. It’s that wildly infectious a boisterous treat, and it was our very first introduction to the Denver alt band. When we noticed on our socials last week that 888 had dropped a new song named Creepers, we just had to look for the song and check it out. Sure enough, the band has offered up yet another sweeping alt rock and electro rock anthem. Prepare for a breathtaking ride as you dive into Creepers, which doesn’t really creep as much as it soars. If it’s stadium ready, arena sized alt electro you’re looking for, 888 is the answer. I have a feeling Creepers is going to slay the alt charts, if it isn’t already doing so right now. You can also stream Creepers via YouTube below.

888, the same alt electro band from Denver who gave us that infectious anthem Critical Mistakes last year, are back with a new one just as vividly hooking. Older Now is a synth florid, effulgent sweeping spectacular. It comes as no surprise that Older Now has already earned a coveted spot on one of Spotify’s New Music Friday playlists. The single is out now on Island Records. You can also stream Older Now via Soundcloud below. 888 was just announced as a part of Lollapalooza’s massive 2017 lineup. I’m hoping they’ll be playing some of my favorite Bay Area fests this year, too, like BFD, or Outside Lands.

I spent my Sunday night doing what I always do. I listened to Soundcheck on Live 105 here in the Bay, cheering for the bands, artists, and songs I already champion while looking out for fabulous new treats. When 888′s Critical Mistakes came on, I was elated. It was immediately apparent that I needed to share the Denver alt electro band’s infectious song. Critical Mistakes is a synth rocking, animated popping tune, and it quickly took a firm hold of me. The single comes from 888′s debut EP, Decades, and the band recently released a music video for the song, too. Watch the video below and purchase their EP from iTunes.
