The enigmatic genre-bending group known as Roadrunner is charting a new musical journey with their multi-faceted style. The global musical project involves mysterious players who have kept their identities secret and allowed their music to do the talking for them. Bridging the gap between contemporary pop, hip-hop, R&B, jazz, rock and electronic music, the group has begun working on their forthcoming debut EP and in the interim, they share the eponymous track that gives listeners a clear taste of the type of musical feast they are preparing.
The record is a stripped-down and bare-bones piece made up of warm and atmospheric textures that help accentuate the love story that deals with the complexities of young love. The track which runs less than 3 minutes is ripe with swirling and airy melodic runs that ebb and flows as the track progresses. Listeners get a whiff of the group's creativity as each section is dynamic and layered with expertly crafted sound design and vocal manipulation techniques that adds a somewhat psychedelic element to the love story.
"Roadrunner" is the first release of the group's forthcoming EP. The EP is an expansive body of work that aims to reflect pure human experience and dwells on many topical themes ranging from family, mental health and the highs and lows of psychedelic experiences amongst other relatable themes. It's definitely worth checking out when it comes out as they promise to deliver an all-encompassing project that would take listeners on an emotional and immersive journey that speaks to the soul.
