The Run Up shared the music video for their new song “Portraits”. The track is taken off the band’s forthcoming album 'In Motion,' which is scheduled to be released on October 3, 2019 through Real Ghost Records (UK), Gunner Records (EU), La Escalera Records, Swamp Cabbage Records, Get Party! Records, &Vinyl Records, and Money Pit Music.
“We wanted the video to match up with the song meaning” confirm Daniel Baker, bassist who filmed and edited the video. “The lyrics are about spending so much of our lives staring at screens that give us impossible standards. Even when we are with people who we are close to, it can be easier to retreat than talk about all the things we should. In the video, we wanted to show the dynamic of how it feels society is heading… a father spending all his time on his phone, looking at this false world created by try-hards and so called ‘influencers’, but in reality he has his son, the best thing in his life right there in front of him. We need to snap out of this new world that we are creating for ourselves and get back to basics… go outside, talk to each other, live your life your way, not how someone with a few million followers has.”
