Glasgow duo Run Into The Night are back with their new single Mon Cheri. A beautifully composed song, harking back to another time, more in common with a Vegas lounge in the 1950’s than the punk rock infused indie they have become known for. Mon Cheri is masterfully layered with pefect vocal harmonies, a lush guitar tone and wistful sense of nostalgia and memory.

Recorded at Infinity Bus studios, the song was written as a tribute to singer/guitarist Christina’s late grandfather Riad Haddad, while the cover artwork is a picture of her grandparents at a masquerade party in the 1960s.

“Being of Italian and Lebanese heritage, this inspired me to have a bit if a mediterranean/middle eastern feel to the track including with the guitar and percussion. Mon Cheri is what my grandfather would call me and the song is a way of remembering him. A man who lived his life to the fullest and enjoyed every minute of it.”  – Christina 

The song also features Scottish music icon Martin Metcalfe (The Filthy Tongues/Goodbye Mr Mackenzie/Angelfish) and was recorded by Simon Doherty, mixed by Robbie Gunn and mastered by Pete Maher (The Pixies, Lana Del Rey and Jack White).

Mon Cheri is released Aug 23rd.
