The Racer Release New Single ‘Young High’

The Racer are back with the release of their new single “Young High.” Listen here

The Racer on ‘Young High’:

Young High follows a character who is going for a run and is doing so to try to find himself and hold on to his youthful enthusiasm for life. He’s still dreaming. He’s still chasing. He’s in it for the long haul. It’s a feeling he gets while running that reminds him of who he is and the challenge of finishing the run that makes him want to keep going in life when everything is telling him to stop.”

The Racer, an independent band from Monroe, NY consisting of Pete Marotta (vocals, keys), Mike Esserman (guitar, keys), Steve Kondracki (guitar, keys), Eric Sosler (bass, keys), and Mike Perri (drums, percussion), has been undergoing a transformation from rock to alternative to indie and experimental over their last 3 releases. The traditionally album-focused band has shifted gears of late, and expects to continuously release a slew of self-produced singles directly to fans for the foreseeable future.

Even though the The Racer has always preferred to keep as much of their operation “in-house” as possible, the mission of self-producing their own music didn’t begin in earnest until after the 2016 release of their Kickstarter-funded third LP GIANT, produced by Dan Hannon (Manchester Orchestra). Throughout the promotion of GIANT, theband began experimenting with using the studio as an instrument, exploring new sounds and techniques, and growing more musically mature. Guided and inspired by theexpertise of their past producers Mike Kalajian and Dan Hannon, proficiency came surprisingly quick, and the results are a breath of fresh air to the members of the band – the realization of a DIY dream many years in the making.
