Running Touch - 'A Body Slow'
Melbourne-based artist Running Touch’s debut EP has been a long time coming. For the last year, the enigmatic artist has experienced a rapid increase in popularity, with tracks like This is Just to Saybecoming favourites among the Triple J Unearthed crowd, as well as a blossoming live show which saw him go from Splendour in the Grass and Groovin’ the Moo last year to the Love Festival and his first ever international shows in the US this year.
When Music Insight spoke to him in the lead-up to this release, Running Touch talked about the concept of this record, basing it on “a fleeting, reminiscent moment of revelation, like something someone said to you that you weren’t necessarily friends with at some point in time, and then that little instant two months later completely changed your life.” With him working so hard on this six track EP, it has become clear that there is a serious attention to detail about this record.
