Listen: New Navy - Runaway

Listen: New Navy - Runaway

An upbeat single for a downlow moment as New Navy's first and last album comes out.

Last week, 31 July to be precise, New Navy's last and first album Lakeside came out. It was greeted with a small, small is a loose word, but highly charged up crowd filled with sighs, groans and sadness. It's strange how a band none of us knew personally, few of us have met, exchange transient moments but connect with people so deeply because of a group of 3-5 minute long songs. Rationally this makes no sense but most things don't. For me their song Oceans is such a deeply relaxing son because of the sampling of rolling waves, deep drums, gentle guitar licks and an overall 'chill the fuck out' vibe. It's hard to even consider it in a critical sense because it's tied up with delicate little pieces of my heart. So to review their final single Runaway feels strange; Runaway embraces an ice-cool vocal touch, playful piano and overall upbeat mood whereas Oceans feels so organic. Listening to Runaway makes you feel like you're in one of those corny films where the main character is farewelling their love, in this case New Navy, and the tears are practically flying off their face. Instead, I'm sitting at my desk typing away at a computer wearing uggs watching my parents groan about the cricket. Music eh?
