Paws

words by tom johnson

Given that they were the most represented label in our 2017 round-up, one might expect Tiny Engines to take some time off over the holiday, but fresh from announcing the signing of the brilliant Long Neck just a few days ago, today we’re very pleased to announce that the label will also be home to Runaway Brother’s ‘New Pocket’ LP – set for release this coming February.

More than that, we’re also extremely excited to unveil the first fruits of the Cleveland-quartet’s hand-earned labour, in the form of lead track Paws, a punchy three-minutes that’ll have old and new fans alike grasping for that repeat button. Beautifully detailed, with little touches of elegance restraint dotted throughout its more robust moments, the track is a formidable and immediate companion, the band’s new-found sense of space – hinted at in the new LP’s bio – coming good as the track always threatens to fully break loose before reeling itself back in again; cards held to its chest; a wistful stare in to the distance.

“It’s about the little anecdotes you have with the people that mean something to you,” lead singer Jacob Lee says of the forthcoming new record. “Some pants just need a new pocket, a little extra space to carry life’s weight.”

Check out the track below right now; are pre-order the album right away here, via Tiny Engines.
