New Song "Paws" Premiere on
Gold Flake Paint

(Bandcamp / Soundcloud)
More than that, we’re also extremely excited to unveil the first fruits of the Cleveland-quartet’s hand-earned labour, in the form of lead track Paws, a punchy three-minutes that’ll have old and new fans alike grasping for that repeat button. Beautifully detailed, with little touches of elegance restraint dotted throughout its more robust moments, the track is a formidable and immediate companion, the band’s new-found sense of space – hinted at in the new LP’s bio – coming good as the track always threatens to fully break loose before reeling itself back in again; cards held to its chest; a wistful stare in to the distance. - Gold Flake Paint

"...the band’s nervous energy makes for jittery pop songs that are as catchy as they are complex." - AV Club

"Wavering between quirky indie-rock and jangling math-pop, the quartet land somewhere between Say Anything and Weatherbox..." - Alternative Press

"...has the snotty sugar buzz of classic pop punk, but incorporates complex song structures and multilayered vocals that you more often find in the work of Brian Wilson-obsessed baroque pop auteurs." - Entertainment Weekly

 "...conjuring an anthemic cornucopia of pop-punk and jangly indie-rock." - AV Club

"On one hand, this is the kind of youthful stuff that fans of Modern Baseball and The Front Bottoms are bound to love, but on the other, there’s dynamic and rhythmic shifts, delicate textures, and a building instrumental passage not often heard in this genre."
- Brooklyn Vegan

Runaway Brother - New Pocket
Say Anything, The Sidekicks,
Modern Baseball, Weatherbox
“Outsider guitar pop” outfit Runaway Brother is smarter than your typical punk fare, too catchy for emo purists and not quite cool enough for the indie elite. Of course, that’s precisely why we love the Cleveland, OH quartet’s spiraling, ever-shifting songs and captivatingly ambitious arrangements.  Much like its critically-acclaimed 2015 debut full-length, Mother, New Pocket’s impeccable melodies, soaring harmonies and all-around killer writing chops are on full display.  However, the twelve tracks on Runaway Brother’s second LP have been given ample room to percolate and evolve organically as the band has spent the past few years experimenting, tweaking and ultimately refining its singular brand of unclassifiable pop music.

Recorded with Eric Cronstein (Delay, Saintseneca, The Sidekicks), New Pocket has all the trappings of a group that is supremely comfortable and confident in its craft. Dynamic mood shifts and playful, eccentric songwriting act as tentpoles for Runaway Brother but never weigh down the band’s seamless delivery or the record’s fluidity and knack for engaging the audience. It’s a true testament to Runaway Brother’s widening repertoire. Where Mother was more about inspiration pulled from the outside, New Pocket pulls from within. Lead singer Jacob Lee explains “It’s about the little anecdotes you have with the people that mean something to you. Some pants just need a new pocket, a little extra space to carry life’s weight.”
