While life appears to be pretty stagnant and mundane as of late, Marie Naffah invites us to “Run Away With Me” in her touching new instalment from her upcoming EP, “Trains”. With a stirring melody that sounds almost like a lullaby, Marie paints a picture of a world devoid of adventure and freedom — one which she desperately tries to escape from. While her rich vocals tug at the heart strings, the tracks music video allows us to see into the artists psyche — full of breathtaking landscapes that are yet to be explored.
In her own words, Marie says, “‘Run Away With Me’ does what it says on the tin, really. It’s about craving escape and wanting someone to drop everything and come with you. Although this is not directly about the pandemic, it’s definitely a product from being bored indoors and dreaming beyond four walls. I guess most people can relate to that feeling.”
Showcasing her natural talent for storytelling, the track is powerful in its production and its message. Channeling hints of classic soul and folk, Marie carves her own musical path that is unlike any other: one which prioritises the listeners emotions over producing mainstream sounds.
