Since I saw Kid Runner play alongside tropical shoegaze band Ex Cops a year and a half ago, they’ve been a band to watch for me. After releasing an EP and having a single get picked up by ESPN, the indie pop band is ready to show the world they mean business with their unique brand of tunes meant to inspire and simply be fun.
One listen to “Thinking Out Loud” – the track we are premiering today, will show you that Kid Runner aren’t your typical alternative pop band. Their music has surprising depth, and you’ll be pumped.
The band will be heading on the road to support their new EP Wake Up Now, which will be released November 4th. On their release day they will be playing Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, followed by a formal CD release show in their hometown of Columbus, OH on November 14th (Captain Kidd and Wolfman & the Airship Captain will support). The next day, the band travels to Nashville where they will support the CD release show of Halfnoise – a new project of Zac Farro from Paramore.
Preorder Wake Up Now on iTunes and you’ll get a free download of their first single, “Move.” It’s a slightly reworked version, to inform those of you that may already own it.
