“Shifting seamlessly into the soaring melodies and pristine production of modern pop-rock, the band has since blown up, renowned for their revitalized sound.” – Popmatters
The alt-rock group Run River North shares the latest music video for effervescent lead single “Wake Up,” from Monsters Calling Home, Vol. 2, the second installment of the double-EP collection (details to come).
In a Mad Max meets Hook post-apocalyptic world, society must exist in a post-internet world with walled-off enclaves and outlandish pool parties. Directed by Shawheen Keyani, (Still Woozy, Bay Ledges), the video is an entertaining and imaginative take on the fall of civilization while capturing the fresh, joyful sound of the track.
Speaking with PopMatters, frontman Alex Hwang says, “’Monsters Calling Home: Vol.2’ is the natural progression from volume one – to wake up and dance because you are amazing. Despite any monsters of doubt, let the monsters inside call home and call loudly.”
Watch (& Share) The Official Music Video For “Wake Up”:
Run River North collaborated with Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio), Hannah Hooper and Christian Zucconi (Grouplove), Chris Chu (POP ETC) and Nick Anderson (The Wrecks) to begin something new; to follow their biggest visions and highest hopes. During the session with Anderson in particular, they realized that not only could they follow their hearts to whatever musical corner of the map they desired, but something golden was waiting for them there as a reward. This time, it came in the form of “Wake Up,” a playful, free-spirited vibe that explores another new avenue for Run River North’s lyrical themes: joy.
Run River North is Alex Hwang (guitar/vocals), Daniel Chae (guitars/vocals), and Sally Kang(keys/vocals). Stay tuned in the coming days for more info.
