Following on from their spectacular previous singles ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Do It Like You Do’, Kawala kick their momentum up a gear with their sweet and empowering new single ‘Runaway’.
‘Runaway’ stays true to the Londoners tropical-styled brand of acoustic folk. Driven by chugging snares and bright guitars, ‘Runaway’ is a song thematically full of hope and movement embellished by gorgeous vocals and sweet harmonies.
Kawala paint landscapes with broad strokes, lyrically visualising the act of reaching out across great distances in an attempt to reconcile and move forward. ‘Runaway’ is an emotive tune that encapsulates the promising and optimistic new wave of acoustic-pop that Kawala have made their speciality.
