Run Boy Run are getting ready to release their new album "Something to Someone," co-produced by Ryan Hadlock, who also worked on the Lumineers record at the end of the month, so they're teasing their fans with preview tracks scattered around the internet. Today, you get the chance to hear "Spin a Golden Thread," a song with harmonies about as lovely as anything I've heard recently.
From the press release:
The album was recorded at historic Bear Creek Studios in Woodinville, Washington with producers Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Johnny Flynn) and Jerry Streeter (Brandi Carlile, Elephant Revival), whose attention to detail shines in Run Boy Run's multi-voiced, and multi-stringed arrangements. With three strong female voices, singing separately or in harmony, it's clear the band has a deeply rooted familial connection to traditional American music. It's in their collective blood. Continuing a sense of innovation in tradtional American music put forth by other bands such as Nickel Creek, Crooked Still, and Trampled By Turtles. Run Boy Run continues this journey into music that is dynamic, orchestral, and overflowing with beauty.
