Following a successful set at Mosley Folk Festival last weekend, County Line Runner, aka singer-songwriter Adam Day, today releases his new single ‘Cold Dawn’ on KIDinaKORNER and Polydor Records.
Starting off with simple synths and building slowly, ‘Cold Dawn’ has a beautiful melancholic edge coupled with sombre lyrics. On the track Adam said, “’Cold Dawn’ is really about how some things have a way of catching up with you… This song I’d written and then kind of buried until my guitar player Sam asked about it during a recording session. Some things you write and don’t want to re-live but Sam really connected with it and I’m glad that he helped bring it back.”
Named after a character from a US nineties TV show who robbed banks across county lines, the moniker summarises his place at a handful of intersections -upbeat energy versus introverted vulnerability, folk sensibilities versus rock ambition, with a nod towards post-punk and nostalgia for days gone by versus hope for the future.
With support from the likes of BBC Music, The Independent, RadioX, Beats1 and Clash Magazine, County Line Runner grace the stages of a handful of festivals this summer, including Reeperbahn Festival, Latitude and Mosley Folk Festival, before a headline tour in February, with a date at London’s Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on 24th October.
