Back in January, The Music Bugle talked to Tony Bucci of Broken Field Runner about the release of their full-length ‘Lay My Head Down’ and “Koreatown” music video.
They will soon put out a series of three EPs, the first entitled ‘BROKEN,’ slated for release May 1, 2020. The songs were written between 2016 and 2019, but were a more serious collaboration with Bucci’s longtime writing partner, Jo-Jo Rose, also known as Nxnes, who played bass on their ‘Clear A Heaven So This Earth Can Breathe’ and ‘Heavy Hanging Fruit’ releases and guitar on ‘Lay My Head Down.’ The new upcoming music will look to showcase Bucci’s musical versatility and a darker pop sound.
The music video for “MOUTHS” premiered last week via VENTS Magazine, where Bucci talked about the single and more.
“In the Spring of 2016 I went to an LCD Soundsystem inspired event called “Dance Yrself Clean” at a venue called the Satellite when my now wife and I were still trying to figure out whether or not we were going to move to Los Angeles. I perhaps enjoyed myself a bit too much and got separated from my friends in a city I was only visiting at that point. I don’t remember much of how I got back to where we were staying, but I vividly remember Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” coming on at the peak of my inebriation. The feeling of panic, loneliness, and isolation I felt stumbling around the bar looking for my friends to that soundtrack left an imprint. Years later when Nxnes and I were in the thick of working on this EP and I was at the home studio of Emily Howard and Tommy Meehan (The Manx/Uncle Grandpa/Sweatband Records) in North Hollywood working on this song, I wanted to channel the energy of that song and the feelings of that night,” said Bucci in the interview.
