I’m sure you’ve had that moment. Maybe it was after you fought with your boyfriend or your parents, maybe after you bombed that test and totaled your car, or maybe after just a really shitty day, you thought to yourself, “I need to get the hell out of here.” Whatever your reason, we’ve all envisioned it, let’s be honest.
Something about that wide, open road just seemed so inviting. It was an escape; it was freedom. Screw tests, money, and authority! You can totally just stuff some fresh undies into a backpack and hit the road, right?
Blonds released their debut album The Bad Ones in August, and their track “Run” is the perfect soundtrack to your next great journey. Crooner Cari Rae’s sultry, bluesy voice brings to mind vintage style during a simpler time. You know, back in the ’70s–that glorious time your parents always talk about–when you could actually hitchhike and do stupid shit with minimal terrible consequences. “Run” is dreamy, thick, and rich with heavy instrumentals laced with powerful vocals.
It’s the kind of song you speed down the highway to in your best fur coat and boots. It’s the theme song of a glamazon with her thumb in the air waiting for her next ride. This song makes you want to literally run out and have an adventure. You can almost smell the fresh air and feel the sun on your face as you brace yourself for those cold nights ahead. Sure, there’ll be lonely motel rooms and not-so-chic public restroom stops, but think of all of the people you’ll meet! You’re a free spirit, a reckless youth! You can’t sit still, admit it.
So embrace that inner hippie-child, rebel-without-a-cause, zero-cares kind of gal and grab your hat. Things are about to get a little wild… but hell, isn’t that what you wanted?
