Fresh off performing alongside Hayden James at Coachella, Running Touch continues to tease us in the lead up to his long awaited debut album “Carmine” with his divine new single ‘Why Do I’ that soars to incredible heights through a touch of elegance in the instrumentation and intriguing melodies that keep you hooked from the second it begins.
‘Why Do I’ is introduced to us through the lowered vocals combining with the captivating strings section that sets the uplifting tone immediately, and continues to leave us intrigued as we progress through the piece with the vulnerable vocals and penetrating percussion injecting a touch more groove into the spectrum which leads into the powerful chorus. Once we arrive here, we are met with a shift in intensity whereby all the previously mentioned instruments combine with plenty of emphasis and allow that stand alone lyric of ‘Why do I need you’ to cement its place in your memory for days on end.
“Production-wise I wanted to build on an anthemic nostalgia style I’ve been working into a lot of the album tracks that originated from When I’m Around You. Heavy reverb, reflective verses, real drums, and soaring choruses.” – Running Touch
