The alt-rock group Run River North shares the latest music video for effervescent lead single “Wake Up,” from Monsters Calling Home, Vol. 2, the second installment of the double-EP collection (details to come). In a Mad Max meets Hook post-apocalyptic world, society must exist in a post-internet world with walled off enclaves and outlandish pool parties. Directed by Shawheen Keyani, (Still Woozy, Bay Ledges), the video is an entertaining and imaginative take on the fall of civilization while capturing the fresh, joyful sound of the track.

Run River North is the latest and greatest to land on our radar and for good reason. Everything from the catchy vocal production to the impressive sound design, ‘Wake Up’ is a well designed record from the inside out. It’s always exciting when a band places a specific purpose behind their music. In this case, it’s Run River North’s ability to transform such a painful experience into a liberating and powerful one.
