JOE’s Song Of The Day #729 – Runway Lights ‘Broad Strokes’
Runway Lights launch their debut EP.
Runway Lights are a new experimental, alternative rock band from Dublin. Their sound has been described as a delicate balance of lulling sweetness and dark nastiness with influences ranging from meticulously constructed alternative pop to the dynamic soundscapes of post-rock. Impressive range there.
In their short time together, Runway Lights have already graced the stages of a number of prestigious Dublin venues including The Workman's Club, Whelan’s and The Button Factory, earning a reputation for their ferocious live sound.
Their new single, ‘Broad Strokes’, tells a dark tale of an unwanted encounter through weaving, finger-picked guitar arpeggios, unsettling atmospherics and a driving hypnotic beat.
