The EP’s success saw Eighty Ninety featured on the cover of Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist, and a second single, “Heartbreaker”, make waves on international viral charts. The band’s self-produced and directed music videos premiered in publications including Ones To Watch, Galore, and Local Wolves.In the fall of 2017 Eighty Ninety announced their upcoming EP Bowery Beach Road and released its first single, nostalgic indie-pop anthem "Your Favorite Song". The song was hand-picked by Taylor Swift for her official Spotify playlist Songs Taylor Loves, and was covered by publications ranging from Billboard and NME to Glamour and People Magazine. "Your Favorite Song" featured on Spotify playlists including Indie Pop, Chill Vibes and Indie Shuffle and garnered praise from outlets like Alternative Press, which called the song a "heartfelt anthem" and the Huffington Post, which declared it "beautiful...sumptuous pop music at its best."
