UK alt-rockers CARRY THE CROWN return with a fresh lease of life with their new single 'Runaway', released today (Friday 1st November). For fans of You Me At Six, Don Broco and Mallory Knox, CARRY THE CROWN showcase a mix of electric, bouncy choruses with soft, infectious hooks. In the band's own words, 'Runaway' is a track "moving them forward", delivering a matured sound that remains true to who they are.
"The song’s lyrics intentionally contradict themselves from the verses to the chorus, to highlight the confusion felt within the narrative," the band comment. "It moves from suspicion and needing reassurance, to the desire for what you already have to stay the same. It mirrors the complexity of relationships and the feeling of fear of losing someone. We believe ‘Runaway’ will be a refreshing change in style for our current fans and a great way to be introduced to everything Carry The Crown."
In their short time as a band, CARRY THE CROWN have already gained support from BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens, BBC Introducing in Lincolnshire and Kerrang! Radio, and featured on numerous official Spotify playlists. It's no surprise, as they bring together the melodic vocals of You Me At Six and combine them with the bouncy guitar work of Don Broco, all whilst honing their own unique sound.
