Alternative band Run River North has returned with hushed harmonies and beautifully lilting melodies, to sooth even the most restless of spirits. The band’s brand new single “Cemetery” is premiering exclusively on Atwood Magazine. Fans can check it out alongside an in-depth interview, here: https://bit.ly/2F8tcTF.
“There’s fascination with death found throughout our songs – ‘In the Water,’ ‘Funeral Parade (Intro + Outro),’ ‘Monsters,’ etc. With cemeteries, there’s a quiet calm that draws me in,” shares Alex Hwang. “I’m able to sit with death and not be overcome with fear. Back when I was dating my now wife Susan, I suggested going to a cemetery that I had always wanted to go to – as if it was like going to the beach or on a hike. She later told me she was obviously a little weirded out.”
He continues: “We went and I felt I got to tell her a secret about myself without having to say anything. ‘Cemetery’ takes me back to that day.”
“Cemetery” serves as a follow up to the recently released “Pretty Lies,” which first premiered on Brooklyn Vegan. The site shared: “It’s a genre-hopping song that manages to incorporate breezy indie rock, jangly acoustic guitars, grungy alt-rock, and auto-tuned Atlanta trap without losing focus.” “Pretty Lies” has also been featured on American Songwriter, alongside an exclusive interview in which the band teased a forth-coming full album – to be released later this year.
