“Run” by Eliza Shaddad – A Song Review

     Song waveforms that steadily ramp upwardly for most of the song are interesting in themselves. Progressive crescendos are energy builds that often lead to obsessive replays. The latest release from Eliza Shaddad is characterized by a ramped waveform, and it does not disappoint. “Run” begins quietly, and while it doesn’t lead to a thunderous conclusion, it does have the effect of maintaining the listener’s interest.

     According to Eliza Shaddad:
“Run harnesses that power of provocation; “Run from me far and fast as you can before I ruin you.” It’s a deeply confessional sentiment, damning and yet liberating, and as unyielding as it is helplessly fragile. This song has a life of its own, and I think half our total studio time was probably spent just trying to tame it.  It’s merciless in parts, musically, and lyrically, and a total beast to play live; getting to the end in one piece can actually be kind of cathartic.”
