Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
"Run For Cover" - New Carnival
Hailing from Bristol, UK, New Carnival is a four-piece indie alt-rock group who have been releasing singles for about the past year, with "Run For Cover" being their fourth. The song has a real simple, organic feel to it, layering harmony and snapping fingers with a more traditional rock sound. I feel like fans of Mutemath, or even early work by The Black Keys will particularly enjoy New Carnival, as "Run For Cover" has that spare, blues-y rock feel to it.
Check out the song below:
If you happen to be in the UK in March (or, you know, live there), New Carnival have 3 shows coming up at the end of the month in London, Manchester and Bristol (with more information available at their website) Also, if you dig "Run For Cover", I suggest checking out "Sweet Caroline"--a fun track which edges toward more of an OKGO sound.
I do create playlists for Tuesday Tunes/Daily Song Drop, and the latest one we have released is our Apple Music Playlist for the Top 20 Songs of 2016
As I said yesterday, you can expect a Dec/Jan super playlist this coming Friday.
See you again tomorrow with another great song!
