Portland-based indie rock band Corvair, comprised of husband / wife duo Brian Naubert and Heather Larimer, are pleased to present “Sunday Runner,” the first single to be lifted from their self-titled, debut album out February 19, 2021 via Paper Walls in the US and WIAIWYA in the UK. The song and accompanying video, which was directed and edited by Naubert, premiered today at Northern Transmissions.
About the song the band says:“Sunday Runner” is a song about a high altitude first date that turns into a tortuous affair–and the literal weekly habit of running around a lake to burn off the frustration of it all. The song is a riff-forward descent into synth rock, laden with emotionally pointillistic lyrics and cryptic turns of phrase. The tension builds until the song finally spills over into lush Mamas and Papas-inspired harmonies and a sweetly earnest pledge to do whatever it takes to keep the flame alive. “Sunday Runner” was mostly tracked (other than the drums), like the rest of the album, in our home studio during the COVID quarantine of Spring 2020 when we had nothing to do at night but argue via song lyrics about the finer points of our origin story and sift through 200 different organ sounds to find the right mix of Deep Purple and Yo La Tengo.
