Australian singer, songwriter and producer Running Touch has dropped his genre-defying new cut, Ceilings.
Weaving together threads of punk, indie and pop into a dance-laden soundscape, the release brings the musicians knack for storytelling lyricism, the musician defines the track as a “rumination on love”, presenting ideas and questions within the verses, that are juxtaposed with defining statements throughout the chorus.
”I really fell in love with this loaded, anthemic sound in this period, referencing strong samplers who create synths and sounds that feel in-between organic and synthetic like Calvin Harris, Daft Punk and Leno. I wanted to mix this with live drums, and I think that’s what really drives it into life. I tried out a lot of chorus vocals but settled on this because I felt reminiscent of one of my favourite songs: ‘Porcelain’, by Moby.” the musician shares of the track.
Earlier this year, Running Touch introduced his new video series, the Post Modern Collective Sessions. Enlisting the likes of Hayden James, Vera Blue and international Bass-queen Blu DeTiger, the series establishes a new space for the musician to continue his live endeavours, whilst also creating the oppertunity for Running Touch to showcase his multi-instrumentalist skill set.
