Bunny X, based in New York City, are inspired by the music, film and culture of the 1980s. In contrast to their 80s pop-leaning and John Hughes' inspired debut album, Young & In Love, released in October 2021 with Aztec Records, their sophomore record, Love Minus 80, explores a darker and more introspective side of Bunny X. Love Minus 80 is a concept-driven collection of songs that were inspired by a number of sci-fi/fantasy novels, films and television shows, many of which were published or released in the 1970s and 1980s.
'The Forever War', the first single from the upcoming album, was solely inspired by a novel of the same name released in 1974 by author Joe Haldeman. The military science fiction novel tells the story of a group of soldiers fighting an interstellar war against an alien civilization but is also a love story between two soldiers attempting to find each other again after being separated literally through time and space. Bunny X was particularly inspired by this aspect of the novel and the single, The Forever War, is the end result.
