Local 913, Episode 16: Run Forever
A distinct 90s alternative and grunge rock influence is present on the band Run Forever’s new EP, Big Vacation. It makes sense that it was produced by Matt Talbott of the Chicago 90s band HUM, best known for their hit song “Stars” from 1995. Run Forever EP’s title cut “Big Vacation” is a hazy summertime jam showcasing vocalist/guitarist Anthony Heubel’s impressively diverse evolution as a songwriter. Its memorable hooks and melodies grab hold of listeners with each telling note, while the bittersweet lyrics are fed by Heubel’s newfound discontent for complacency and exploitation. Anthony says of the song”
"I tried for a really long time to be the guy that loves everyone… I have finally accepted that I will never be that person. I have always loved songs that poke fun at the human experience, mundane life styles, American culture. “Big Vacation” is a song about looking around you and feeling like everyone is trying to sell you something to make your life better, or more personalized or more convenient."
Run Forever have a full length album coming the fall, but in the meantime, check out their 3 song EP Big Vacation. They will also be playing on August 20th for WYEP’s Local 913 Live. For more on Run Forever, visit their website.
