’RUN RUN POOR BOY’ is a raw and heavy song, something you wouldn’t expect from Gentle Savage in contrast to their previous material.
This new single shows something about the band’s new direction. The devil gets what he seeks! ‘RUN RUN POOR BOY’ tells the story of a young man who gets in trouble because of his own deeds.
In ‘let the demon inside your head’ we refer to a metaphor on the use of free will and choosing wrongly. So who’s to blame?
The poor boy? The mob? Society?
Musically ‘Run Run Poor Boy’ combines Blues, Psychedelic Rock and Heavy Rock. If you mashed-up ROBERT JOHNSON, JIMI HENDRIX and BLACK SABBATH you might get close to what we have achieved. The result is a catchy and rhythmic song that you instantly remember. This song could easily be envisioned being played in the back of a barn with only an acoustic guitar to the extreme contrast of being played by a band roaring at full volume in a stadium concert. The single will be released via Grey Beton Records on all major streaming services and download stores on October 9th.
