Dream pop four-piece Mother Runaway is a new Louisville band that features ex-members of The Astral Planes and Big Spoon. Considering that I’m not familiar with either of those to acts, I wasn’t sure what to expect when this single arrived in our inbox. “I Won’t Lie” is the song in question, and at first listen it is quickly evident that these folks are on to something. The track has a vibe to it that scratches that dream-pop itch that is satisfied by bands like Twin Limb and/or Lower Dens, with a hint of Cocteau Twins for good measure. I’m especially attracted to Savannah’s soothing voice (don’t know her last name) as she vocally glides through this song taking it to another level.
Admittedly my knowledge about Mother Runaway is very limited, but this serves as a perfect introduction to their sound leaving me excited to hear what else they’ve got up their sleeve. Listen to “I Won’t Lie” below (also available on Spotify & Apple Music):
