Following radio support from BBC 6Music, BBC Radio Ulster and Amazing Radio and a string of glowing press features, Northern Irish indie-folk band runabay return with their new single Too Soon (Reverie). The fleet-footed and enchanting new song is led by chiming guitars and Autumnal harmonies and is available now on all streaming and download platforms.
“Too Soon (Reverie) is primarily about missing opportunities due to hesitance,” explains frontman John McManus. “The ‘it’s too soon, so I’ll wait’ line is an internal struggle many of us feel, as we wait to find the ‘perfect’ time to decide on things – knowing full well that perfect timing doesn’t necessarily exist. It’s an introspective song about the implications of indecision.”
Hailing from the Glens of Antrim and Belfast, runabay has existed since February 2014 and has received acclaim from Hot Press Magazine, ChordBlossom and Culture Hub NI. They have been described as alt-folk or indie, but the intricate and adventurous nature of their songwriting means they rarely fit into predictable pigeonholes – as Creative Spotlights commented in a recent review, ‘they are so much more than a genre category could ever describe.’
