'Promised' is the second collaboration between retrowave/Italo disco duo Bunny X & retrowave/80s eclectics, Thought Beings. Following the release of their 1980s Hi-NRG inspired single ‘Cross The Line’, released in December 2022, the Aztec Records labelmates saw fit to release another similarly-styled track.
Not unlike ‘Cross The Line’, 'Promised' highlights the best of the 1980s with synthetic disco, freestyle and Hi-NRG elements reminiscent of Johnny O, Cynthia, Noel and of course early Madonna.
Also similar to ‘Cross The Line’, the lyrics in 'Promised' describe a love story gone awry due to hidden secrets and lies. ‘Promised’ lets us know that some promises are better left unsaid when “words are just weapons”.
