Stream Roomrunner’s Separate EP

Jake Saunders

Roomrunner‘s brand of grunge rock contains a subtle complexity, but on top of all that it’s full of head banging madness. Their new EP, Separate, was recorded by Jawbox / Burning Airlines’ J. Robbins with all four band members contributing to the writing process (as opposed to being mostly that of frontman, and former Double Dagger drummer, Denny Bowen). Odd dissonances and out-of-nowhere-yet-pleasingly unexpected melodies jump out sporadically within heavy power-chord jams. It’s a dream combination of everything good about ’90s pop punk and grunge music with hooks for days.

While more collaborative, the lyrics on Separate take a more personal tone, as Bowen explains. “I used to use lyrics as a vehicle for sounding out weird combinations of words, now it’s more of a way for actual release.”

Separate will be available October 21 on Accidental Guest, after which Roomrunner will hit the road. You can stream the EP in it’s entirety below, and read on for a full list of tour dates.
