New Teen Runnings: “Take You Away”

Vancouver-based blog Hearing Gold put together a special compilation titled Vacation Spirit in advance of the summer months. They write that these are “15 exclusive songs documenting the sounds of a blissful summer as personally expressed by their respective artists.” One of the contributors is Japan’s Teen Runnings, a trio that seems pretty well-suited to provide some rough-edged guitar rock to a compilation about the warmer months. “Take You Away” opens with a fuzzy vocal sample about surf music…turns out it is like beat music…before launching into the feedback-soaked pop Teen Runnings have been tooling around with for a while now. It’s short, but prime Teen Runnings. Listen below, or get the comp here.
