Honing their live skills on the Irish circuit RUN iN RED have been described as ‘urgency transcribed into music’ and deliver indie rock through a wall of harmonic layers and musical dynamics. Based in Dublin, the quartet formed in 2017 and have released two EPs and four singles so far.
The band played their biggest headline show to date in LoSt LaNe in Dublin last July, coinciding with the release of ‘Dirty Spirits Design’, and played more shows across Ireland, the US and UK which kicked off at the start of June. This led into the recording and release of their most recent release ‘i Want It All To Stay’ plus the addition of new member Luke in October.
Having supported Pillow Queens, Makings and Jamie Adam and taken the main stage at the Button Factory, Whelans and The Soundhouse, 2020 is shaping up to be a big year for the band with many dates booked in, the recording of two new singles already underway and a mini tour of Ireland scheduled for June and July. Upcoming dates include supporting Alexis Kings, playing at the Searchlight Showcase and a slot for the second year at Something In the Water Festival in July.
With airplay from TodayFM, 2FM, FM104 and BBC Radio Foyle, the band have also been featured as JOE.ie’s ’Song of The Day’ twice for two of their previous singles which are available on all digital platforms, and stocked in Tower Records.
"The song itself is an infectious melody which will remain in your head for a time after hearing it. It's good solid indie-pop and has a chorus which will be sung lustily by their fans when they bring it to the live setting of a gig." Eric Lalor, JOE.ie
"The band take their vibrant anthemic sound and hone it down into potent musicianship. RUN iN RED creates a delicate soundscape. The track has a ethereal melancholic tonality." Danu, indiebuddie.com
"...the chorus is something that you could definitely imagine yourself roaring back to the band in a big sing-a-long.” Darragh Berry, JOE.ie
"Their music will spring some new sounds to your ears and has a similar feel to the likes of “Imagine Dragons”. Zuzanna Piasek, TheSharpe.com
