If the internet era has bequeathed artists anything, it is the ability to find and grow an audience, and from there attract notice from the music industry. The independent musical landscape is rife with talented bands just waiting to break onto the scene. North Carolina group Sumerlin is one such band- a band whose time has come to be recognized and embraced.
 
Runaways follows the typical pattern of rock releases: a collection of tracks representative of the band’s dominant musical milieu supplemented by a couple of radio-friendly singles. Sumerlin puts their best foot forward and delivers 12 incredible tracks of well-heeled modern rock. Every track of Runaways resonates with lyrical and sonic aptitude. The epic worship song “You Always Were” stands out, harkening back to Canada’s Downhere & Starfield during their radio-dominating heights; while “Here With You” and “Louder Than Words” rival all things Skillet at their peak.
 
Sumerlin‘s music owes a great deal to the current modern rock sound, alá Skillet, Red, etc., yet carves out a sonic identity that remains distinctive. Runaways’ richly textured, guitar-driven sound is a tour-de-force and perfectly compliments Dan DiGiovanni’s expressive vocals. Fans of Colton Dixon, Nine Lashes, the late-lamented Sent By Ravens, Silverline and TFK should definitely give Runaways a listen... LOUDLY!
