Track: Empyre – Hit And Run

Rob Blackham

Empyre have shared the third teaser from their forthcoming album with their new track ‘Hit And Run’. The band’s new album ‘Relentless’ is due on the 31st of March via Kscope.

Commenting on the track the lead singer Henrik adds:

“Hit and Run is about returning to somewhere you once knew well, picturing it as if it had been frozen in time, but on your return the realisation comes that whilst the place still provokes powerful memories so much has changed over the years that there isn’t much to relate to there anymore. Specifically it’s about me returning to a town where I lived in Denmark. It’s quite a sad song, but we felt the sentiment behind it really lent itself to a warm, slightly dreamy, 80s vibe, and that may well be something we want to build on in the future.”

A song that breaths with huge guitars allowing Henrik to hit home with his powerful and emotive vocals. In fact, the whole track is packed full of emotion that simmers underneath the melodic building blocks. The open and resonating guitars sound nothing short of magic topped by Did Coles ending things with a smoking guitar solo.
