There’s a lot to be said for bands who are out on the road honing their skills. And that’s exactly what Pittsburgh’s Run, Forever have been doing the past two years. It’s something you can easily pick up on throughout “Settling”, the band’s latest release. It rocks from start to finish and immediately feels familiar with the nicely buzzing guitars, hard-hitting drums and Anthony Heubel’s heartfelt lyrics.

Even when they tone it down for the acoustic “Braddock Beach” which was recorded live in the studio, they still manage to keep things sounding raw and cozy at the same time. “Close To The Sun” is another mellow tune that stands out thanks to the sweet harmonies the band puts on display before going with a bang that’s called “Forget”.

Run, Forever won’t flip the earth’s rotational axis with “Settling” but it definitely is a fun listen that begs to be played out loud.
