Emerging UK indie-pop band KIN shares their fourth single, "The Runaways," accompanied by some entrancing visuals. The trio made up of Grace, Adam, and actress Ritu Arya (of Umbrella Academy fame) brings a refreshing take on retro-fitted ambient pop on this new single with the help of producer Josh Tyrrell. The resulting track is a mid-tempo nostalgia-inducing piece ripe with rich guitar riffs, layered textures, and alluring melodic runs that soothes the ears while the singers dive into the unpredictable emotions that come with blossoming love. They explore the growing feelings and a bit of trepidation that creeps in as two individuals venture into the unknown.
The self-directed video filmed in London and Brighton is inspired by 1980s Hollywood including Steven Speilberg’s ET and follows the story of two characters as they walk the unbeaten path hand in hand. The visual aesthetics has a DIY feel and revels in its documentary-style approach. There are actually no performance shots of the band members which helps keep viewers locked in the story of the two love birds.
KIN are Grace, Ritu, and Adam; a female-led, London-based trio who all have creative backgrounds. Grace is a performance maker and model, and Ritu and Adam are both actors. Adam was last seen on stage at the National Theatre and Ritu is a lead in the Netflix series The Umbrella Academy and is about to star in the film Red Notice alongside Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot, and Dwayne Johnson.
