Run For Cover – The Killers
The Killers were the band of my teenage years. They were one of the first I was ever truly obsessed with. In fact their name being on the Big Day Out line up when I was in fifth form was what inspired me to buy a ticket and thus sparked my eternal love for concert going.
These guys know how to write a rock singalong. With songs like Mr Brightside, All These Things That I’ve Done and When You Were Young they set a high standard for the emo music era of the early 2000s. Their fun-style and upbeat take on rock made it accessible for any music lover and their electric live act ensured they were a band you’d never forget.
So, with all this in mind, you can imagine my excitement when they announced a new album was on its way this year after a decent hiatus. I wondered if they could still do it…did they still have the ability to produce a real timeless track? I never should have doubted them, Run For Cover is hands down one of the most entertaining and exciting songs of 2017.
There is no way you will be able to sit still while listening to this, it’s pure riveting pop-rock and I bloody love it. You MUST turn the stereo up really loud, or put your headphones in, to listen to this track. Be prepared to lose your mind slightly, it is just that good.
