Ugly Runner Releases Debut EP ‘Romanticizer’

Three-piece rock band from North Carolina, Ugly Runner, have recently released their unique 6 track EP. ‘Romanticizer’ is now available to stream via all major streaming platforms.

Comprising Brett J Kent (bass), Stephen Britt (vocals/guitar), and Russell Walker (drums), Ugly Runner are not your stereotypical rock n roll band. Their sound can be described as the perfect combination of California Punk and British R&B. Debut EP ‘Romanticizer’ expresses this distinctive blend between these genres perfectly – if you’re a fan of The Stooges, Ty Segall & The Pixies, then this EP is definitely for you!

The band worked with engineer Peter Brownlee last May in order to create their anticipated EP. This gave Ugly Runner the rest of the year to perform shows in preparation of release.

Speaking of the EP, Ugly Runner said,

“’Romanticizer’ is an EP we wanted to put out as a rock’n’roll showcase. It’s not a concept album in a lyrical sense, but it is a representation of personal growth, addiction, relationships, and the hope for societal awareness all around us. The concept: let’s put out rock ‘n’ roll music that flirts with various sub-genres while harnessing a fresh aesthetic, a unique delivery, and striving for distinction between tracks.”

Ugly Runner speak very highly of ‘Romanticizer’, and rightfully so! It was released right at the beginning of the year on the 2nd January, giving an indicator of what’s to come for the rest of 2020! For more updates, make sure you check out their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
