RUN is the amalgamation of that static-y white noise kettle sound infused with soothing green tea and catchy pop songs. Hailing from Hull and its surrounding areas they originally started out as a barber shop quartet, but suddenly came to the realization that they could play alt-punk by hammering out a few power chords like everyone else.
This conclusion came about in 2011, the year the wave finally broke and rolled back. The emerging figure of that, which we now call RUNoffthestatic, has finally shown its teeth, performing like headless chickens, giving raw performances and great shows with youthful enthusiasm.

“…they could really carve out their own sound.” – On The House Music, Aug 2014
