It is November 17th 2013 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
Residing in Suffern, New York is North Runner, a pop/punk band made up of [friends] Jack Goodman (vocals), Collin Adams (guitar), Eli Ritter (guitar), Colin Michie (bass) and Nick Magliano (drums).
Formed [just under] two years ago, North Runner has been steadily growing their fan base, as well as their event list, ever since. And, well, their hard work is definitely paying off because fans cannot get enough of the guys.
The wall on North Runner's official Facebook band page is constantly filling up with fans posting compliments about their music. Most recently there have been posts stating comments such as, "Love your music! Awesome!!", "Stumbled across your EP on Bandcamp. Modern, but I love the rootsy punk feel some of it has. Keep it up dudes, hope you guys go somewhere." and "Just listened to your EP and immediately downloaded it. Loved it.", among others.
North Runner, who are currently signed to Mayflower Collective, an independent label based out of New Jersey, released their EP, titled All That I've Got, on June 30th 2013.
All That I've Got is complete with five phenomenally well written tunes. And, the second track off the EP, titled Long Drives And Last Goodbyes, is earning this week's 'Song of the Week' spot.
I ran into North Runner on Twitter a couple of months ago and was drawn to their EP right away. The well written lyrics and catchy pop/punk vibe are an instant winner. And, it is no wonder why their fan base is [steadily] increasing as well.
So, it is without a doubt that the members of North Runner are unquestionably talented young men. Their music has been impressing fans all along and I know many more incredible releases will be on the way from this Suffern, New York [based] band. And, of course, Long Drives And Last Goodbyes has surely earned this week's 'Song of the Week' spot because of that.
If you are unable to make it out to any of North Runner's upcoming events, be sure to head on over to their Bandcamp page and pick up their EP, All That I've Got, right away. As well, you can give their songs a listen, including this week's 'Song of the Week', Long Drives And Last Goodbyes, on their Youtube Channel, here:
See you next Sunday for another 'Song of the Week' to be posted right here on Basement Entertainment's official website. In the meantime, while you wait, check out North Runner and be sure to follow this band and watch as their careers continue to grow.
