At Capacity

The Weekend Run Club

by Rebecca Mae

A five-piece group recently formed in 2018, The Weekend Run Club is ready to take over with their debut album, dropping January 31st. They are releasing two singles in anticipation for the album, the first of which is “Beck”, available now on Bandcamp and Spotify. This first single sets the bar high for the rest of the album, and I am definitely becoming a fan of The Weekend Run Club.

“Beck” is simply a great indie-pop song. The upbeat melody allows for dancing amidst the heavy thoughts expressed through the lyrics, which can be a tricky combination, but they sure nailed it in this track. I did not want this song to end, honestly; although it is a full 3 minutes, I kept putting it on repeat to pick out every detail of the performance and production. Flowy guitar riffs and echoing backup vocals are scattered throughout the song’s production. The bouncy rhythm of the chorus provides a perfect contrast against the smooth lead vocals that guide the song.

Though this group was only formed in the past two years, they are quickly and surely defining their sound, and this song is just the start. Keep an eye for The Weekend Run Club, and check out their debut album when it comes out this month.
