With a garage-rock sound inspired by Joan Jett, The Kinks, and The Pretenders, RunHideFight broke into the Philly music scene last year with singles “He’s a Jerk” and “Because I Love You” via Hidden Volume Records. Keeping with the same energy, the band has just released their newest song “Send Me a Postcard”.
Front woman Geeta Dalal Simons shreds on guitar and creates a distinct grit on the track with her unforgiving vocals. Back-up vocals from Brother JT provide depth to make for a full, layered punk sound, trickled with power-solos from drummer Jon Kois and bassist Christine Weiser. It’s loud, it’s in-your-face, and it’s irresistibly catchy. Hear “Send Me a Postcard” for yourself below.
(UPDATE: A very upset Facebook commenter pointed out that “Send Me A Postcard” is a cover of a Shocking Blue song from 1968…”so the catchiness is THEIRS.” While we at The Key feel that catchiness is the result of an action, and therefore isn’t exclusive to any one artist, we appreciate them looking out and correcting us on our omission. Wasn’t Shocking Blue the band that did that Nirvana song? -ed.)
