After the successful launch of their debut single Down the Line, Run Rabbit Run are set to release their follow up single Wasted in the Sun.
The new single is a rolling upbeat tune with an American alt-country flavour. Wasted in the Sun is cheerful and infectious, brimming with catchy hooks, and easy-to- digest melodies. The song is a crowd favourite at live shows; it’s energetic and fun, with rich three-part harmonies, bright and airy mandolin, and thumping double bass. The track was recorded at ScreamLouder Studios with Peter ‘Reggie’ Bowman, and mastered by renowned engineer, Don Bartley.
A music video was released alongside the new single and, like the last clip; this one is the creation of lead guitarist and co-frontman, Michael Roberts. The idea for this clip was to create something that complimented the singles light-hearted nature.
“I wanted this video to be less story-driven, and more visually appealing. I rear-projected landscape shots onto a white screen as a background to create an interesting effect against the foreground, like moving in fast-motion. We used smoke machines, branches, and coloured stage lights in certain parts for a psychedelic vibe.” Michael Roberts – Run Rabbit Run
