Julia Anrather – “Run to You”


“Run to You” is the latest from NYC artist Julia Anrather, impressing earlier this year with the infectious “Dorothy.” Featuring mellow guitars and a grooving bass line to start, “Run to You” begins with feelings of artistic inspiration: “I’ve been sleeping with my guitar / Can you hear it? When I wake up, Got a song made.” The track launches into a gripping hook prior to the one-minute mark, with higher-pitched vocals, dashes of keys, and twangy guitars forming a melodic success. The guitar solo approaching the three-minute mark adds a scorching, concluding delight. “Run to You” is another thorough success from Julia Anrather.

“When I wrote “Run to You”, a lot was changing around me but I hadn’t really caught up yet,” Anrather says. “It’s about breaking up with myself, trying to clear the space I needed to have a bigger life. I got to work with Sarah Tudzin (Porches, Weyes Blood) on the mix which was really great. She pushed it into a bigger, pop-ier place than I’d have while leaving room for the intimacy and grit that keeps it grounded in reality.”

“Run to You” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Pop.
