Can you really write someone’s name on a grain of rice? That’s the first thing I asked myself when I stumbled across this song, but by the end, I totally forgot what drew me to its odd title in the first place. I can’t get enough of the folksy vibe Runnner gives off in this single. (And before you ask, yes Runnner is spelled with 3 n’s. Yes, I did stare at my computer for five minutes just to make sure a grammar error wasn’t actually an error).
“Ur Name on a Grain of Rice,” which follows their 2019 EP,Fan On, feels charmingly rustic. Throughout the song, the seven-piece band adds experimental layer after layer, blending each new sound together harmoniously. It sucks you in from its warm opening and keeps you listening until the rich, final verse.
