Respected electronic dance music vocalist @_watchmeRUNN shines solo with “Handle With Care”

RUNN, “Handle With Care”

“Handle With Care” is a melodic delight from L.A.-based singer RUNN. If you don’t know her by name, you definitely know her by voice through notable songs recorded with Illenium, Wooli, Dabin, William Black, We Are Fury, and numerous others over the last two years or so. Solo songs were inevitable with all of her vocal and songwriting talents, and “Handle With Care” also serves as the title of her 5 track EP. The song itself is much gentler than the settings in which you’ve heard her, and the crisp, on-point vocal really shines with less heavy production. I hope that we continue to hear RUNN on electronic dance music tracks recorded by others too, because she is a part of that soundtrack, but with songs like “Handle With Care” she can successfully hold a concurrent path too.

“Memories” achieves a smooth stylistic balance for Vancouver’s @WeAreFury with vocalist @watchmeRUNN

WE ARE FURY and RUNN, “Memories” (free DL)

The latest from Vancouver production duo We Are Fury is a stylistic charmer.  It’s emotional electronica for sure, but it retains the harder edges for which Joachim and Stuart have become recognized.  The restrained and sometimes delicate voice of RUNN is showcased and never does the vocal become overly urgent, and instead is committed to sing about either fond or painful reminiscences like those which make up everyone’s past.  While producers like Illenium and fellow Canadian Ekali are definitely leading the way with transforming dance music with this kind of style, I’m happy to hear We Are Fury recognize in “Memories” an effortless, well-developed balance.  It’s available as a free download, for now, at the link above.
