Run Into The Night – Vinyl Launch

Stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

By the time post punk headliners Run Into The Night hit the stage the audience was a few beers deep and dancing. Lead single ‘The Devil’s Rhythm’ and ‘Never Ending Blues’ were as tight and controlled as ever and ‘Turn To Static’ had an almost Chvrches stadium feel to it. The highlight, though, was Mon Chéri – a love song to lead singer Christina’s wife. With some beautiful lyrics such as: “Sometimes it feels like my mind, won’t wait in line. It’s always trying to skip the queue, of thoughts that lead straight to you. Oh what a curse it would be. What a curse it would be to fall in love with me. Mon Cheri, mon Cheri,” and, as ever, Ellie May’s drums complimented Christina’s wailing vocals perfectly.

Opening act Jen Lambie – normally the frontwoman of punk band Powerkeg – said; “I thought it was amazing! Every band sounded great and had real catchy songs, everyone was super friendly and receptive when I was on, and Run Into The Night were the best I’d seen them, super confident!”

Support act AWOL (Always Waiting On Lynn) brought their strong baselines, a hard rock attitude, and shredded guitar from lead signer Clare Lynn (who at one point interrupted her own set to steal her girlfriend’s beer). While The Raptors were an all-female gothic rock band, with lyrics referencing being crucified, full moons, midnight, and – presumably – teenagers experimenting with the occult in the deceptively simple ‘Teen Witch’, which was recently released as a single at theraptorsforever.bandcamp.com/album/death-becomes-her-teen-witch.

Words: Ana Hine

The Run Into The Night (Vinyl Launch Night) + The Raptors took place at Nice N Sleazy in Glasgow on September 1.
