RUNAWAY BROTHER - NEW POCKET VINYL (SUPER LTD. ED. OPAQUE YELLOW & OPAQUE RED IMPORT)
SUPER LIMITED EDITION OPAQUE YELLOW & OPAQUE RED IMPORT VINYL
Release Date: 16th February 2018
Only 300 pressed! Yet another great release from the American label Tiny Engines - this time with the Ohio quartet Runaway Brother. This hits the sweet spot between emo, indie-rock, and pop-punk all within the true sense of what those sub-genres meant in the 1990s. Full of hooks and catchy as hell, yet guitar heavy and with a grooving rhythm section this is an instant winner!
“'Outsider guitar pop' outfit Runaway Brother is smarter than your typical punk fare, too catchy for emo purists and not quite cool enough for the indie elite. Of course, that’s precisely why we love the Cleveland, OH quartet’s spiraling, ever-shifting songs and captivatingly ambitious arrangements. Much like its critically-acclaimed 2015 debut full-length, Mother, New Pocket’s impeccable melodies, soaring harmonies and all-around killer writing chops are on full display. However, the twelve tracks on Runaway Brother’s second LP have been given ample room to percolate and evolve organically as the band has spent the past few years experimenting, tweaking and ultimately refining its singular brand of unclassifiable pop music. Recorded with Eric Cronstein (Delay, Saintseneca, The Sidekicks), New Pocket has all the trappings of a group that is supremely comfortable and confident in its craft. Dynamic mood shifts and playful, eccentric songwriting act as tentpoles for Runaway Brother but never weigh down the band’s seamless delivery or the record’s fluidity and knack for engaging the audience. It’s a true testament to Runaway Brother’s widening repertoire. Where Mother was more about inspiration pulled from the outside, New Pocket pulls from within."
