VUKOVI – Run/Hide
Release Date: 22nd November 2019
VUKOVI’s second album Fall Better is set for release on January 24th 2020 and if ‘Run/Hide’ is anything to go by, it’s going to be a belter. On the band’s Facebook page they list their genre as “noisy pop rock” and this song is very befitting of that label.
There’s a heavy under-current to the song but it’s infused with the unmistakable energy and fun of pop rock. There are elements that are reminiscent of Paramore’s After Laughter album, but there are some aspects that feel much more raw and unpolished than that. It’s a fascinating and effective contrast which make for a sublime track from the Scottish duo. It doesn’t feel as though it takes itself too seriously but… it absolutely rips at the same time.
