SINGLE REVIEW: K.FLAY – Run For Your Life
I really love K.FLAY. I think she is one of the most exciting and unique artists of right now. Her genre-bending tracks explore emotional and honest themes whilst providing catchy hooks and cool sonic structures. So it’s no surprise that her songs have been used in trailers for movies like “Molly’s Game” and TV shows like “Scream Queens” but now she’s taking it to the next level. She’s unleashed the theatrical “Run For Your Life” which serves as the lead single for the new “Tomb Raider” movie. This edgy and moody track grabs your attention immediately with the banging synths and drums that are reminiscent of Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead”. The track has all of these different unique sounds layered which creates a very cinematic sound that will leave you impressed to say the least. Half way through the song alters its direction with synths that transforms this song into the ultimate soundtrack score before returning to her bold chorus. It’s not going to be a song suited for everyone but it’s VERY cool and is the perfect next step for her constant evolution.
