Run River North
Shares Poignant New Single
Premiering Now on Atwood Magazine
August 12, 2020 – San Fernando Valley, CA – Alternative band Run River North has returned with hushed harmonies and beautifully lilting melodies, to sooth even the most restless of spirits. The band’s brand new single “Cemetery” is premiering exclusively on Atwood Magazine. Fans can check it out alongside an in-depth interview, here: https://bit.ly/2F8tcTF.
“There’s fascination with death found throughout our songs – ‘In the Water,’ ‘Funeral Parade (Intro + Outro),’ ‘Monsters,’ etc. With cemeteries, there’s a quiet calm that draws me in,” shares Alex Hwang. “I’m able to sit with death and not be overcome with fear. Back when I was dating my now wife Susan, I suggested going to a cemetery that I had always wanted to go to – as if it was like going to the beach or on a hike. She later told me she was obviously a little weirded out.“
He continues: “We went and I felt I got to tell her a secret about myself without having to say anything. ‘Cemetery’ takes me back to that day.”
“Cemetery” serves as a follow up to the recently released “Pretty Lies,” which first premiered on Brooklyn Vegan. The site shared: “It’s a genre-hopping song that manages to incorporate breezy indie rock, jangly acoustic guitars, grungy alt-rock, and auto-tuned Atlanta trap without losing focus.” “Pretty Lies” has also been featured on American Songwriter, alongside an exclusive interview in which the band teased a forth-coming full album – to be released later this year.

About Run River North:
Did you know that Run River North tried to change their name back? Back to Monsters Calling Home, back to recording everything themselves, back to selling their songs on blank CDs in homemade paper sleeves.
Eventually though, they decided to move forward. They still record songs themselves, yet there’s more story up the river and they’ve had a lot of folks help bring them to where they are now, including producers Joe Chiccarelli (Morrissey, Broken Social Scene) and Miro Mackie (Mallrat, Cold War Kids, St. Vincent), Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio, Hannah Hooper and Christian Zucconi of Grouplove, Derek Furhmann, Sir Sly, Nick Anderson of The Wrecks, and Chris Chu of Pop Etc, Vinyl Pinups.
Over the last two years, Run River North went back to the future with Monsters Calling Home: Vol. 1, 2 & 3. And now here in 2020, they’re an independent band with an independent sound and more new music to come.
Oh and they kept the same artist who did the homemade paper sleeves for their first demos. Annie Seo you are okay, cool.
