The Hiding Explores Creative Emotional Music With Run City Run

The Hiding is a band I recently caught wind of and was blown away by the layers of their music. They are an indie rock band that has a great sense of melody and rock enthusiasm, but it’s done with a soft touch, like a true artist. Their latest offering “Run City Run” is a song that certainly captures the emotional connections of the independent music scene, and the alternative world all in one. You get that emo vibe a bit, but it’s on par with bands like Lakes, Delta Spirit, Ocean Is Theory, Statistics, or even a bit of Mute Math to boot. There are layers here and that’s what matters to me as a music fan, you don’t just have one thing going on, you have several.

Listen closely and you get the sounds of guitars, drums, bass, and perfectly timed and themed vocals. It’s a song that really catches you off guard as it moves through lyrical connections that you are going to find compelling overall. There are so many bands trying to do this type of music and failing to capture the elements correctly. What you get here is a band that knows how to mix their emotions with lyrical contemplation, driving bass lines, and unique elements that make them stand out amidst a tired genre.

The Hiding definitely brings a lot of great sounds here, and it’s on par with many of my personal favorites from Jade Tree (records), and I am definitely enjoying the sound they are creating. It very well may be my favorite new song right now, as it has a certain intangible quality. I’m not sure what it is, but it works. My new kitten Ronnie dug it enough to fall asleep in my shoe as I blasted the song. That’s the sign of a good song, it has soothed the savage beast. (Ronnie is named after Ronnie James Dio fyi)
