It's a personal narrative: a retrospective wrapped in a love story, with a heartbeat pulse, a flat-picked guitar, and a gravelly voice. It's very much modern acoustic pop, but it has a veneer of sympathy, and of honesty, that elevates the images and gives a strong sense of purpose.
It's the little things like thematic consistency and small variation, when done correctly, leave little symbols floating around in the listeners' mind... A liberty bell, a feeling of motion, that visceral sense of attachment to someone, or something: exciting, tantalizing, immediate, and worth everything.
"Run Like Hell," is the new single from America's Got Talent finalist, Taylor Mathews, produced by The Chemistri. It is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
