Run Run Run is a run-on sentence that's already been done before

The group Run Run Run hearkens back to the shoegazer age, which was a short-lived musical era. In fact, its stylistic description says more about the bored musicians that played it, then the sound itself.  If you sorely miss that shoegazing sound, “Song and Dance”, with its slow beat and jangle-y guitar, is Run Run Run’s shoegazerist track of all. But if you want to hear Run Run Run run, if you will, from such easy categorization, skip straight to “Try”. This one chugs along nicely to a Franz Ferdinand power-pop groove. However, if you’re looking for something a little quieter, the partially acoustic “2 A.M.,” with its hushed keyboards, has your name written all over it. Run Run Run is one group that provides very specialized nostalgia.
