Melbourne’s Running Touch unveils a beautiful array of inspiration and talent with his brand new six-track EP, A Slow Body.
Opening track “She’s Waiting” is a passionately heavy introduction to the EP that combines a gritty atmosphere above fully emotive vocals, courtesy of Running Touch himself. Lead single “Lovely” showcases that same endearing voice in a more melodic light, paired with sparkly drums and a shimmering melody. The expressive artist releases a mass of feelings throughout his lyrics and compositions, indirectly urging you to do the same as a listener. Previously released tracks “Courtesy Of” and “Don’t Tell Me It’s True” fuse ingredients of dance, pop, and indie genres into cohesive and notably enjoyable arrangements. “You’re Saving That For Me” and “Audrey” could be pleasantly confused for Kygo/Flume collaborations.
The upcoming artist is making his breakthrough by being responsible for every bit of magic involved in his work, from the music, to the art, to the videos and lyrics. He has been recognized by Triple J as “RUFUS x DISCLOSURE x ZHU x CHET FAKER’s talented and quirky love child,” and we couldn’t agree with that description any more. He recently made his North American debut at SXSW, before he heads back to Australia for a homeland tour run.
It’s only a matter of time before Running Touch is an internationally recognized name. Join early supporters ZHU, Safia and Miami Horror and dive into A Body Slow below.
