After their excellent 2016 album Drinking from a Salt Pond, Run River North returns with an B-Sides EP Superstition.
Drinking from a Salt Pond was quietly one of the better Indie Alternative albums of 2016. Run River North has a very unique sound, one that usually pushes a band to the top, similar to early Arcade Fire. While they haven’t seen that success just yet, they have definitely grown substantially in the past year. They really developed their sound following their mostly acoustic debut, and it really pushed them to new levels. That is shown again here on Superstition EP.
Superstition features a song released before Drinking from a Salt Pond was released but it didn’t make the final cut of the album. The EP also include a cover of “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers. Other B-Sides on the EP include the song that inspired the album title, even though it didn’t make the album, and their most recent single from the album “29”.
Run River North is an exciting band, considering their growth from their first album to last year’s album. Indie Alternative fans will definitely want to keep an eye on this budding band.
