Clean Cut Kid has been burrowing away in their Liverpool studios for near 18 months working on songs that we've only just begun to hear. Releasing their debut just a couple of months ago, the world of A&R and new music hounds alike were twitching in this act's direction as they eagerly scoured the internet to hear more.
A few weeks later, we're treated with their second single "Runaway," which -- despite being crafted some time ago -- sounds as exciting and new as if it were written yesterday. They're indie, but not in the way we've heard it before. They're accessible and have catchy choruses, but they're not boring. They're not too edgy that we can't love their sound from the first listen, but we've still got the appeal of discovering more about this new band.
After seeing them perform at the legendary Reading Festival last month this was one of those tracks that already had us trying to sing along with the words with a huge smile on our faces.
Meet your new favorite band.
