The Hiding – Run City Run
Upbeat, breezy, and unimaginably optimistic, The Hiding’s ‘Run City Run’ is a cheery blast of indie pop rock laced with electronics and soaring vocals.
The Hiding formed out of a previous band in 2010, following a change in direction, and have had their previous work produced by Jimi Maroudas and mixed by Mark Needham (The Killers).
Opening with a guitar hook that grabs the attention, ‘Run City Run’ powers into the verse like a steamroller; “Watching sunsets make romantic silhouettes / Painting the sky, I ask myself why I’m alone”. The melancholic lyrics are held aloft with the positivity of the music, with influences from Owl City, Yellowcard, Jimmy Eat World, and the anthemic prowess off The Killers, with a chorus that will lodge itself firmly in your brain for days to come.
