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.

Taken from their debut album of the same name, ‘All Of Those Nights (Santa Monica Mix)’ is a brand new recorded and extended version of the album title track and features new vocals, guitars and arrangement.
Described as ‘the Synthwave London Grammar’, The Lightning Kids have strong nostalgic electronic roots mixed with nods to great 70’s & 80’s records by The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac.
‘All Of Those Nights’ is heavily influenced by 1980’s sun-drenched California and tells the story of two star-crossed teenagers and endless summer nights riding in fast cars, dancing at amusement parks and lying underneath the stars.
Since the release of ‘All of Those Nights’ in November, The Lightning Kids have quickly gained a following racking up nearly a 1m views on Tik Tok with their movie-clip mash-ups leading to a #1 album placement on the German alternative album chart on I-Tunes and Top 10 in over 5 countries. The band have racked up over 50,000 views on You Tube and have surpassed 100,000 organic album streams.
2023 sees The Lightning Kids prepare for the release of new music such as some remixes and new songs due for release throughout the year.
