MUSIC NEWS: Melb artist Running Touch gets his alt rock on with a brand new tune!
Lashing out in some sensational new sonic arenas, Melb artist Running Touch today unveils a trek away from his trademark electronic ways with a brand new track Signs and accompanying drum-tastic clip to herald the new 'Post Modern Collective Sessions'.
A steadfast mainstay in radio, streaming and live performing realms of late, Running Touch has frequently found auspicious havens for his electro-soaked tunes and unconventional flair. Juggling significant demands throughout the last 24 months as a songwriter, producer, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and creative director, it comes as very little surprise Running Touch has kept busy during the ongoing pandemic crisis. And although his previous work as a solo artist generally leaned closer to experimental electronica, it's with his latest tune Signs that this enigmatic muso leaps stylistically towards his earlier industry induction as a key member and founder of Ocean Grove, with an alt-rock-meets-indie-pop delight that's heavy on the drums and easy on the ears.
Showcasing the significant professional and personal evolution Running Touch has journeyed in a short space of time (while also offering a glimpse into what may be to come with his impending album release), Signs also busts out some drum-heavy delights; and it's fitting that this track heralds the start of Running Touch's Post Modern Collective Sessions, featuring a series of instrument-focused videos that will run throughout the upcoming album release. Signs marks the first cab off the rank for the series, bringing together some of Running Touch's closest friends and collaborators, with Sam Bassal (Ocean Grove), Nic Pettersen (Northlane) and Lampy (Crooked Colours) joining the man himself for a seriously kick-ass four-way drum playthrough of the brand new tune.
