Run To Me: unsigned alternative rock band from Bracknell Forest, UK (E105)

About: Run To Me

Run To Me: unsigned alternative rock band from Bracknell Forest, UK played in E105 of ArenaCast

At the first acquaintance with the music of Run To Me you may think that the Adam Blake`s vocals is not expressive enough for such driving music, but from the first chorus, you will find yourself thinking: Wow, his vocals are just perfectly combined with music, creating their own flavor, making all their songs unique.
You can download the debut EP from the Run To Me on their Bandcamp page and find information about upcoming concerts on their Facebook page.

1. How do you see yourself in 5 years? What is your main goal as a band?
We have no idea how we see ourselves in five years’ time, hopefully our band can continue but life get more complicated as you get older! I think our main goal was to enjoy the time we had in the band, and to see what it was like to be in a band. If it wasn’t enjoyable then it wasn’t worth doing, and it has been great so far much better than we anticipated.

2. Can you name some peculiarities that define the music scene in your town/country?
The music scene in Berkshire is very varied. We have played with bands from the metal scene to pop-punk to acoustic to blues rock and everything in between. Reading is our closest city and the music scene is growing well with lots of opportunities for gigs from promoters, and is attracting well known bands too.

3. What do you think of episode 105? Which of the other featured songs do you like the most?
Episode 105 is great for bands to grow their fan base and get some exposure. ‘Sail to the moon’ by Odoghan was particularly a track we liked!

4. Is there a story behind your song Awake?
Awake did not have a story behind it as such. It was much more about time passing quickly as you’re growing up and not being sure what the future holds for you.

5. Please tell us about your video “Too Late To Pretend”. Who was working on it? Who has created the idea and the concept?

Our video for Too Late to Pretend was a project we put together working with the company Distinctable and in particular James Prismall. We simply wanted a video to co-exist with the song. The idea was very basic, just to show off the song so there was not really any story or meaning behind it.
We are also filming a new video for our song ‘Awake’ sometime soon with Distinctable again after winning their online competition for a free music video.
