The sports car on this cover is a damn good analogy for how this song from Diamond Pistols sounds…like a brand new, well oiled Spinnin’ Records machine revving up its engine. It reminds me of the first time I saw a Lamborghini Huracan after being super amazed by the Gallardo and Diablo for years…the old ones were amazing but that was on a whole new level, and that’s how I feel about this song coming from Spinnin’. I’ve been to tons of raves and festivals where the DJs were dropping Spinnin’ songs left and right, but I don’t think any of those songs ever made me feel the feelings I’m having right now.
Props obviously have to be given to Diamond Pistols first – his production sounds absolutely massive, but it doesn’t have millions of cheap layers, kind of like a basic sports car with a badass engine being better than one that talks the talk but doesn’t walk the walk (you thought the car metaphors were over huh?!). It’s a smooth ride that’s perfect for Ian Everson to deliver some equally smooth and seriously emotional vocals that deserve just as much credit. And you know, I might not have a sports car even with all this sports car talk, but I still have to go bump this through my *ultra powerful* Civic’s aux cable and hear “Run Away” in all its glory.
