RUNNNER, the Los Angeles-based band, has quickly become of the best kept secrets in their music scene today. Helmed by Noah Weinman and Nate Lichtenberger, the band fuses electronic and experimental elements into their ragged, heart-on-your-sleeve folk-rock. A sound they somewhat facetiously refer to as “Bandcamp songs for Soundcloud kids.”
“We start with these honest, almost bedroom-folk songs,” Weinman said in a recent interview. “And then we just start adding like 808’s and weird found-sounds and pretty soon it’s something totally new and exciting.”
Their debut album, Awash, has crept its way through the city’s DIY-scene. Tracks like “Monochrome” and “Urgent Care” have won over fans for their wry and sometimes devastating takes on break-ups, loneliness, grilled chicken, and minor medical procedures. The album’s title track, “Awash,” exemplifies the way the band blends ambient textures into their emotional folk songs. Starting with a sampled trumpet and layered harmonies before launching into a soaring guitar solo and crushed electronic drums.
Their expressive live shows, performing as a sprawling, seven-piece band, have garnered a passionate fan base. Playing at some of LA’s hottest venues and supporting indie stars such as Half Waif, Girl Pool, Arms Akimbo, and Field Medic - the band is quickly staking their turf on the LA scene with sights set nationally.
