KATIE BURDEN - RUN FOR YOUR LIFE

Hunnypot Live #354 performer Katie Burden just released a new music video for the song “Run For Your Life.”  If you missed the live performance, don’t worry, we got you covered.  Check out the audio stream from the November 14th show here.  Whether you heard the song live at Hunnypot, during our live stream, or not at all, you should check out the “Run For Your Life” video.  Burden told Nylon Magazine that the inspiration for “Run For Your Life” came from German thriller film Run Lola Run.  She described it as “one long chase scene.”  Her own video component for the track is a significantly shorter chase scene (barefoot, no less!), bringing to life the ghouls that lurk under our beds, in our closets, and outside our windows.  

When she is finally caught by the monsters, she’s trapped in the ground, in yet another nightmarish scenario, buried to her neck in the dirt like a modern version of Samuel Beckett’s play Happy Days.  However, a tarp covers her and she soon morphs into one of the monsters herself.  The psychedelic pop-rock track lends to this frantic fight for survival, this dreamscape some may be all too familiar with from their own nightmares.

“Run For Your Life” is off Katie Burden’s September 2016 album, Strange Moon, available now via Cautionary Tail Records.
