It is appropriate to feature a running-related song in the hours leading to the Boston Marathon. The Racer continues to generate blogworthy songs. “Young Racer” is the latest. The basis for the track:
“Young High follows a character who is going for a run and is doing so to try to find himself and hold on to his youthful enthusiasm for life. He’s still dreaming. He’s still chasing. He’s in it for the long haul. It’s a feeling he gets while running that reminds him of who he is and the challenge of finishing the run that makes him want to keep going in life when everything is telling him to stop.”
The Racer is a band from Monroe, NY. The members are Pete Marotta (vocals, keys), Mike Esserman (guitar, keys), Steve Kondracki (guitar, keys), Eric Sosler (bass, keys), and Mike Perri (drums, percussion).
