Runaway Brother – “Moth” (Stereogum Premiere)

Chris DeVille | January 7, 2015 - 11:39 am

Cleveland pop-punk ragers Runaway Brother have a new album called Mother coming soon. The soaring “Moth” goes all-in on nasal emo aggression — you might say that it really takes back Sunday, if you know what I’m saying. Lots of groups have embraced these unflinchingly adolescent sounds in recent years, but few have made them sound so vital. Bonus points for the gnarly guitar riffage and organ swells on the outro. Listen below.

Runaway Brother are going on tour this week too, starting tonight in Akron:
