Chris DeVille, Stereogum:
Cleveland pop-punk ragers Runaway Brother have a new album called Mother coming soon. The soaring “Moth” goes all-in on nasal emo aggression – you might say that it really takes back Sunday, if you know what I’m saying.
I don’t know about any sonic comparisons to TBS, Chris. But I do know this band is the best thing to come out of Cleveland since Devo. I’ve been going to Runaway Brother (and The Whenever Plan, for those who remember) shows since high school.
They signed to Tiny Engines last year and now they are premiering tracks on Stereogum. Well deserved.
Their album, Mother, drops 3/31.
