“Runaway” is a runaway hit, even if it’s not a single yet

It’s not a single, but it really really should be. Recreational Love, the fourth album by The Bird and the Bee, is blessed with euphoric sounds reminiscent of a magical Eighties jukebox. From that batch of songs from the creative indie-pop duo, “Runaway” is the front runner. It has a dash of summer splash and blends Hall & Oates’ synth-R&B with New Wave perfection. Inara George even attacks the vocal like she possessed by Deborah Harry. “I don’t mind some cheap motel/Let’s take our time, move real slow, but let me say just so you know,” George carefully paces as if she’s re-imagining herself on the golden rap prototype of “Rapture.” Summer 2015 would not be complete without hearing this album track.
