By The Perms
The most recent single by Canadian power-pop trio The Perms has surfaced, and clocking in at just over three minutes, 'Running Away' is a song which is instantly likeable. Played too many times though, and it could send you insane.
The band, who know how to use a power-chord or three, have created a track which on the surface comes across as a good fast-tempo pop/rock song, but perhaps is let down by an overuse of the classic vocal "Woahhh" and the drummer becoming trigger-happy on the high-hats during the refrain.
In short, it's a fine song but by sticking to their ridged power-pop framework, The Perms have managed to create a tune which is fairly bland. It's solid, but easily forgotten.
