A new EP by Runaway June entitled “backstory” was released on Friday, August 20th, 2021.
In conjunction with this release, the band will join Luke Bryan on his Proud To Be Right Here tour. The three songs on Runaway June’s three-song EP have a wonderful western rock-n-roll feel. The folksy song that deals with heartache and heartbreak as well as moving on. Naomi Cooke, Natalie Stovall, and Jennifer Wayne tell the story of what brought them together before settling down with their now-partners. There is plenty of harmony in “backstory” which is accompanied by strong vocals.
Written by Naomi Cooke, Jennifer Wayne, Corey Crowder, Emily Shackelton, and produced by Dann Huff, “Forget About That” is a feisty, relatable tune that captures the good feelings you experience when you run into your ex. You miss the romance rather than remember why the relationship ended in a shambles because it stimulates the kind of nerve that carries carpe diem.
Following is “Down The Middle” written by Naomi Cooke, Jennifer Wayne, Hannah Mulholland, Barry Dean, and Tofer Brown, with its production by Dann Huff. In the form of a ballad, this song teaches us that sometimes hearts don’t break and that there is no quick way to fix such a heartbreaking situation.
Among backstory’s final tracks, “T-Shirt” was written Naomi Cooke, Jennifer Wayne, Adam Hambrick, and Mark Trussell, who produced it as well. The EP comes to a close with a spirited upbeat track whose empowerment makes the heroine laugh about her past.
