A.O.T.M. April- Run On The Sun

“Run On The Sun”
Cos Cob/ Greenwich, Connecticut

The Members

Brett- Vocals/Piano
Alessandro- Bass
Ethan- Drums
Itamar- Guitar

The Sound

Run On The Sun is labelled as a piano pop/rock band, however they are much more then that. They combine several different genres to create a truly unique listening experience. Combine that with meaningful lyrics and you have an amazing band.

The Background

Brett and Ethan met in a theatre class and later met Alessandro and Itamar. They started jamming and playing a few shows. It was then that they decided to take a short break. Eventually they got back together and found they really clicked and the rest is history.

Run On The Sun has already shared the stage with huge acts such as Bruno Mars, The Black Keys and Mayday Parade. In addition, they have played at countless venues and have proved that they are not going away anytime soon.

The Review

When I first listened to their EP “New Empire”, I was instantly hooked. You can see the passion that they pour into their music through their lyrics. They are very heartfelt and you can easily relate to them. I believe that it is the bands lyrics that make them so successful and enables them to stand out in the crowd.

Now by no means do I try to take away from the bands musicianship. They are all amazing musicians and, especially considering how young the members are, very professional in their work. The way that the instruments blend together creates the perfect blend to compliment their lyrics.

For $4.95 on iTunes, “New Empire” is a steal of a deal. The songs never seem to get old and I find myself singing them throughout the day. From the title track to the last, “Disappear”, this EP is very solid. Considering how long the members have been playing, Run On The Sun creates music that is very mature and I look forward to hearing where they go next.

Oh, and props to Alessandro for creating the amazing album artwork!
