Artist Profile - Runner Runner

Runner Runner is a five piece electro/pop/rock band from Huntington Beach, California. They are the remains of the pop-punk band Over It from the early 2000's. They formed in 2008 and released their first EP, Your Greatest Hits, in August. They then released an acoustic EP of all the songs from their first EP in December. They also currently have a few other unreleased songs on their myspace. When I first heard So Obvious, I was immediately hooked. It begins with electro before the guitars jump in. They use extremely catchy lyrics and phrases to lure in listeners. They also have tons of variety in their music. They have songs like So Obvious and slower songs such as See You Around. See You Around sounds like it could be a top 40 pop song. The chorus is extremely catchy and easy to get stuck in your head. One feature of both So Obvious and See You Around is that you can hear the harmonies in the background. They also show their musical talent by making an acoustic version of each one of their EP songs. The acoustic versions are just as good as the originals. So Obvious and See You Around are both love songs, however The Breakup Song is a more vicious song. The bridge is a skit in which he breaks up with his "girlfriend" and she goes crazy. They have also released three songs on myspace on what I hope will be an upcoming album. She's My Kinda Girl is an extremely sweet love song with amazing lyrics. They talk about how amazing this girl is and how he'd do anything for her. It flows perfectly and is one of my favorite songs. Back To Go Again and Hey Ally are also songs worth listening. I saw them live with All Time Low in December and they were amazing. I definitely suggest checking them out. Listen to Runner Runner on their myspace HERE.
