Runaway Mornings bares all with evocative single 'In The Cold'
Sydney songwriter William O’Donohue aka Runaway Mornings has marked an impactful return in 2019 with a stunning new effort in new single, ‘In The Cold’. The latest from the North Shore artist brims with excitement looking ahead to a new year of material.
Buoyed on by crisp indie-electronic instrumentation and a deep vocal that oozes rich quality, ‘In The Cold’ captivates with each sonic swell. Personal and contemplative, Runaway Mornings puts his soul on the track and invites the listener in to become enveloped by the music.
“I want to be alone, far away from here,” whirls almost hypnotically through ‘In The Cold’, while emphatic electric guitar and rhythmic percussion take the single up another notch into a harder territory than the lofty openings of the song initially indicate. Recorded at The Grove Studios alongside James Osborn and Jack Nigro on mixing and engineering, and Darren Ziesing on mastering, Runaway Mornings’ new single came to life in a creative environment marked by openness, encouragement and support.
The music of Runaway Mornings has always been marked by expansive soundscapes and a love for ethereal and emotive songwriting. His debut EP In Hindsight was a perfect introductory piece; a record that offered insight into the young songwriter’s burgeoning artistry.
With a sound akin to artists like Local Natives, The Rubens and Timberwolf, Runaway Mornings matches vulnerability with musical strength, a combination that has followed through beautifully into his new work. Delving into personal anguish, relationships and intimacy that only comes from looking inward to move forward, Runaway Mornings as an artist, has harnessed a formula for creative expression that is not only detailed and heartfelt, but it is ever intelligent and formidable too.
