Track: Liverpool Risers The Garnetts Share New Single ‘Still Running’

Liverpool-based indie-pop up-and-comers The Garnetts return with their latest single ‘Still Running’.

Having already sold out nights at prestigious Liverpool venues, including The Cavern (for BBC Introducing), O2 Academy, Grand Central Hall, and EBGBs among others, the band have built a growing reputation for their high energy live performances.

The new single ‘Still Running’ is a prime example of their indie tendenices. Produced by Ben Harper (The Mysterines, The Kairos, The Sherlocks, The Zutons), the track showcases their bands uncanny ability to craft infectious melodies and buoyant guitar led backdrops. Bringing together bright, crunching guitar tones, tight driving drums, and grounding bass, the track is pulled forwards with a sense of purpose by the commanding, infectiously catchy lead vocals.

Growing into its anthemic chorus, the track gradually builds momentum adding layers of vocal harmonies under the central lead vocal line as it grows into its euphoric climax. Short and sweet at under three minutes, ‘Still Running’ is a brilliant example of less is more, managing to deliver a captivating, commercially viable listen without losing pace or focus.

Talking about the single, the band explains: “I was tired when I started out writing ‘Still Running’. Modern life is tough, getting tougher – and all you ever seem to hear these days (whilst the kids are making millions from their bedrooms) is people telling themselves they should be content with the things they’ve managed to own. But when you ask yourself whether the things you sit amongst are the things you think you’re here for, you start to wonder what you’re doing with your time. It’s about finding the strength to put your middle finger up and shoot for a dream, even if that means living with “less”, or struggling to make average ends meet as an artist; stuck in that bottom-of-the-ladder job. It’s about realizing you’d rather spend time living with the sun on your face, surrounded by people and art at any given opportunity than build a healthy pension.”
