Boy Harsher - The Runner

Available:Out of Stock

    Boy Harsher really can do no wrong. The dark wave, minimal-leaning devil disco synthers - AKA vocalist Jae Matthews and producer Augustus Muller - have been making music to blow minds, and accompany visceral imagery, since long before they had tracks licensed for TV and movies. So it's fitting they have now graduated to writing an entire score, and what a score it is.

    The Runner spans the groove-infused, mechanically euphoric 'Autonomy', through the sinister and unsettlingly tense 'The Ride Home', 'Machina' and its sexy retro-futurism, 'Escape''s e-funk warm balladry, and so much more. It's a wild ride through an after dark world that's as familiar today as it was in the 1980s, and yet still feels like a true adventure. Compelling to listen to, and that's putting it mildly.
