‘Out Of Your Hands’
“If you’re thinking of making a nostalgic film set in the 80s then you have to include this song on its soundtrack.” – Dom Alessio, on ‘Out Of Your Hands’ (4 stars, triple j unearthed)
Niterunner is a brother sister duo based in Byron Bay/Brisbane. Formed in 2014, their early single releases and debut EP Anonymous has gained interest online and gathered a following for its soulful electronic pop production and sweet melodic vocal hooks.
Their new single, ‘Out Of Your Hands’ was recorded in their family’s home studio in the hills behind Byron Bay, and was produced by 1⁄2 of Niterunner & Dansuede, Daniel Suesskow.
Already having received glowing reviews on triple j unearthed, ’Out Of Your Hands’ is a rework of one of Niterunner’s earlier tracks. It was one of the first songs they uploaded, which quickly gained momentum online, reaching 16K views. Niterunner has been featured on multiple online music blogs, including Acid Stag and I Heart Moosiq. Their first release, ‘Toska’, was featured on the Contiki Road Trip Asia Series 2015, and their recently collaborated song ‘What a Waste’ was put into rotation on triple j Unearthed Radio.
‘Out Of Your Hands’ is an upbeat summer vibe track that draws on nostalgic dreamy soundscapes and soulful vocals. Its lyrics reflect on moments of symmetry, a singular way of thought and reaction, a cycle of repetition, and a struggle to cope. It’s a moment of self realisation and reprieve, learning how to counterbalance that internal process and the way it impacts your life, realising that there is only so much you can control, and all we can do is try to let go of the things that are out of our hands.
“Lovely song. It’s not as soft as it appears on first listen with some really great execution to all its parts.” – Dave Ruby Howe, on ‘Out Of Your Hands’(4 stars, triple j unearthed)
“Niterunner engulfs me fully into their beautifully flickering song, and I could care less about ever coming up for air” – I Heart Moosiq
