Bio

Runner began 2 years ago as a small cog in Perth’s vibrant experimental scene. Since then the band’s sound has expanded to include luscious three part vocal harmonies, warm guitar tones, double drums and driving bass underpinning. All of this builds on the solid melodic focus from their instrumental beginnings. Their latest release, Footprints/Cubs, showcases the culmination of time spent developing the band’s sound as they ready themselves to launch into the studio with a newfound confidence and wealth of material.

The band draws everywhere from the breezy sounds of Real Estate, the intricate soundscapes of Bon Iver to the overwhelming orchestrations of Explosions in the Sky.

PRESS-

"Next up was Runner, the highlight of the night. In the world of Runner, nothing is abrupt. Every track sings a slow crescendo. It's a sound that sits amongst the melodic post-rock of bands like Explosions In The Sky but with the added harmonics possibilities of three vocalists and the rhythmic nuance of two drummers" - Henry Andersen, X-Press, Kiss My WAMi Compilation Launch.

"With lush production, seriously boner-inducing singing, and focused songwriting, if you’re not head over heels after these five songs, it might be time to get your heart checked." - Aurora Peralta, The Thousands.

"[Runner] are nothing if not tight as all heck. Luckily, they are more than that; they’re seriously inventive musicians with a great ear for dynamics and an impossibly precise sense of rhythm." - Lyndon Blue, Cool Perth Nights

"In just two songs, their performance was enough to peg them as a band to watch." – Ashryn, Faster Louder

"Depth and intricacies to make Sigur Ros smile." - Jennifer Peterson-Ward, X-Press
