Latvian artists Skultik and Reinis Liepa bring two worlds together, with creative originality and conceptual depth combined. The brand new single Run makes fine use of aspects of electronic sound-play and heavy metal alike, resulting in a melodically alluring, lyrically revealing journey, which utilises contrast to a supreme degree.
From mellow and contemplative verses, stripped-back and simple to keep the focus on this diary-like vocal outpouring, to the outright explosive uplift of a well-crafted hook, Run proves the perfect accompaniment to precisely what its title implies. The high-volume chorus embraces the listener and energises them with ease, as well as providing a quickly memorable hook that begs for them to view this as the anthem for self-progression and belief in better.
Openly devoted to exploring the familiar story of self-doubt on the route towards self-determination and drive, Run achieves a fine balance between darker vibes and the uninhibited optimism of an artist and performer now committed to the cause. The journey is reflective and relatable, yet ultimately empowering, and the louder you listen – the greater the effect.
Brilliantly built, catchy yet non-intrusive, honest. Hopefully there’s plenty more music to come from both Skultik and Reinis Liepa.
