Track of the Day – SMACKBOUND “Run”

This is a powerful tune from Smackbound, a new hard rock/metal band from Finland. It’s taken from the band’s debut album, “20/20”, released by Frontiers Music Srl.

Netta Laurenne of Smackbound has this to say about the making of the video:

”The video was shot in Gran Canaria, during the massive ”Calima” sandstorm in February 2020. It was so stormy that the sea literally washed away a lot of the lights and other equipment that the crew had to run after to salvage. Even I got swept away towards the depths of the roaring sea a couple of times and the crew considered tying a robe to my ankle to be able to reel me back to the shore. With eyes and lungs full of sand, you can witness a real struggle that fits the song’s mood perfectly as the song tells about the agony of trying to get over someone who has already moved on with their lives while you still struggle to let them go emotionally.”

The band is:

  • Netta Laurenne – Vocals
  • Teemu Mäntysaari – Guitars
  • Rolf Pilve – Drums
  • Vili Itäpelto – Keyboards
  • Tuomas Yli-Jaskari – Bass
