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 moody, dark pop retrowave 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.
“Daydreaming”, the third and final single from Bunny X’s upcoming album, was inspired in part by films like Drive and Thief as well as some recurring characters in renowned science-fiction author William Gibson’s “Sprawl” and “Bridge” trilogies, released in the 1980s and 1990s, respectively. The track itself pays homage to Robyn’s Call Your Girlfriend era while still maintaining an overall retrowave theme.
Specifically, “Daydreaming” speaks to the often unspoken tension and feelings that can build up between two individuals that find themselves spending a lot of time together but, for one reason or another, are unable to or incapable of being together in any real sense. Hence, the only place that the fantasy can reside is in dreams.
