Continuing his musical evolution is Christian Adjeisa, who after dropping the four-to-the-floor r&b sounds of Secrets last year is back, this time getting just a tad emo on exhilarating new pop punk cut, RUNNING, which alongside its cinematic music video is premiering on Pilerats a day ahead of release.

Featuring tight drums alongside a pulsating bass line and atmospheric, reverberated guitars, RUNNING sees Adjeisa explore a relatable tale of love and heartbreak, with his melodic vocals featuring some tasty layering and effects.

Speaking on the inspiration behind his new single, Christian says "'RUNNING' is my journey of grappling with heartbreak and search for truth, trying to outrun the haunting memories and painful truths of a failed relationship."

Meanwhile, the picturesque music video (directed/filmed by Frederick McHenry and shot in Ngemba Country, Brewarrina) takes the songs themes into the visual medium, depicting the emotional barrenness of heartbreak against the stunning scenes of the Aussie outback. Opening in a campervan (and featuring some awesome props including an Ozzy Osbourne action figure and books by musical icons Flea & Gucci Mane), the video sees Christian on a journey of  self-discovery and renewal.
