The Broadest Blue – “Run For My Life”


With flourishes of Beirut’s orchestral-laden stirrings alongside a penchant for audible narratives, reminding of The Decemberists as well as Sufjan Stevens, The Broadest Blue produces on originally stimulating sound that brings a track’s lyrical world and audible soundscape to life. New track “Run For My Life” explores the events of an army private stationed in France, processing cryptographic messages — hence the typewriters as percussion. The feeling of being on the run is accurately conveyed by the rising intensity, as the vocals of project lead Kurt Juergens flexes emotion and narrative power. It certainly does a great job of transporting listeners to October/November 1963.
