North Carolina rock trio Sumerlin has announced they’ll be releasing Runaways, their full-length debut with Dream Records, and it will be available on Feb. 4. In the mean time, check out their clever cover of “What Child is This?” for the upcoming Dream Christmas, Vol. 2. More from the band’s press release:

Runaways is a record about knowing what you’re running from and what you’re running towards. The songs are all about how you can sink so deep into something that it completely consumes you.  The only way out is to run. Run away from what holds you back and breaks you. Run towards what rebuilds and renews you. These songs speak from our own hearts, our own personal experiences as well as experiences we’ve seen in the lives of friends and family. Running away is not always an act of rebellion — if you put God on the side you’re running towards — it is by no means a cowardly or rebellious act. Our mission is to be relative and relatable to all of our listeners. You’re better than what holds you back. We are the runaways.

Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
