“nye” by Runner

Runnner is the project of Noah Weinman. The LA-based artist is releasing his debut full-length, Like Dying Stars, We’re Reaching Out, on February 17th via Run For Cover Records (Narrow Head, Camp Cope). Ahead of the release he is sharing the album track “NYE.” The record is culmination of years of songwriting and home-recording that manages to feel both intimate and cinematic all at once. Runnner’s songs often hinge on a unique mix of hifi/lofi dynamics and intricate arrangements that incorporate guitars, banjo, synths, piano, and most importantly, Weinman’s melodic vocals and catchy melodies.

Noah Weinman on “nye:”

“I didn’t actually write this song on NYE but pretty close to it. It was the last song I wrote for the record and I had been in such a deep recording mode I felt like i was neglecting so many other parts of my life. I was diving back into the record one more time and feeling like i should probably come up for air. I wanted it to be the moment on the record that really feels like it breaks the fourth wall. In the movie of the record this is where you cut to reveal me sitting alone in the studio, looking haggard. It’s just my voice and a bass and the little space heater in the background. I made the video around the same time to try and feel that way too.”
