In every scene there is a band that transcends the idea of a “local band” but has yet to fully execute an escape. In Cleveland, Ohio, that band is Runaway Brother.
The conversation that follows a Runway Brother set is always the same. “This band is amazing, why aren’t they huge yet?” I hear this every time I see them play and I often wonder this myself. Runaway Brother is a band that should be shared, not locally coveted.
It’s because of bands like this or Dead Leaves (ex-Call It Fiction) that I began to write about music in the first place. So when I have the opportunity to continue writing about my favorite locals or help them out in whichever way I can, I jump on the chance.
Here is the music video for Runaway Brother’s single “Blueberries.” You can find the song on their 2012 EP, Bedhead, here. Enjoy and share.
