The Runner Up is first place in our books

We are honored to have Alternative Pop Rock band The Runner Up as the newest member of the 80/20 family!  In fact, we’re so excited that we’re dropping their new single Somebody on June 14th.     Come celebrate with us at their album release show at Valley Bar on June 29th. Event link: https://www.facebook.com/events/436990280393235/     About The Runner Up: The Runner Up (TRU) is an electrifying alternative rock band from Phoenix, Arizona who have spent the last year setting local stages on fire with their energetic performances, and pumping up the airwaves with consecutive singles showing off their unique mix of indie rock and guitar pop hooks. They are reportedly dedicated to making you sing hooks for days and dance until your butt falls off–which is not far from the mark. While their singles and recordings have garnered an impressive online following, it’s their performances that keep packing venues with throngs of fans who know every lyric to every song.

It was a master stroke...

Sydney Sprague releases new single FOMO

Honored to release Sydney’s incredibly touching single, FOMO, from her upcoming EP Bad Patchwork.   You can take a listen here! smarturl.it/spragueFOMO   Lyrics: I can’t even I can’t not Think about leaving when the times get hard The clock keeps ticking A forward March Into the oblivion Into the infinite stars The weight of it keeps me on my toes   Where you wanna go, You just wanna pace in the middle of the road Or you just wanna stay, You don’t really know why it feels like home You just gotta go right now, Maybe it’s the fear of missing out   Can someone tell me what I am I don’t remember and I don’t understand The way you see right through me But not at all Not translucent, not a bulletproof wall   Where you wanna go, You just wanna pace in the middle of the road Or you just wanna stay, You don’t really know why it feels like home You just gotta go right now, Maybe it’s the fear of missing out...

Born in Austin, Texas, Sydney absorbed the music that surrounded her which inspired a career as an artist in 2008.   Lending her unique voice to universal themes like love, conflict, vengeance, and someone named “Steve”; Sydney followed up her last EP, Dark Cloud, with Bad Patchwork released under 80/20 Records.
