Single Review – Foo Fighters – Run

It has been two years since one of the worlds biggest bands released material with their St. Cecilia EP in 2015 and another year since their last album Sonic Highways from 2014. Their new single ‘Run’ took some people by surprise though people have been expecting some new material and is likely to form part of an upcoming ninth studio album. It opens with those echoed, ringing riffs before a pacing percussion signals the start of a rabid and snarling piece of hard rock. From Dave Grohl’s screeches to the wiry lead riffs ahead of the grinding rhythms, the song kicks and screams and kicks hard. In an instant, they have the ability to turn melodic with echoed harmonies, backing vocals and Dave’s typically easy tunefulness. It is not going to be the best track you’ll hear this year, but the Foo Fighters have typically delivered a high octane track with added aggression whilst retaining the ability for melody amongst the heavy sounds.
