First things first, THIS TRACK IS AMAZING AND IF IT DOESN’T MAKE THE TRIPLE J HOTTEST 100 NEXT YEAR THEN THE ENTIRE THING IS RIGGED AND WE NEED TO PROTEST!!!!!!
Coming off a successful 2016 which saw Melbourne enchantress Woodes release her self-titled debut EP and hit the stage at venues and festivals across the nation 2017 see’s Elle hit the ground running her eye set firmly on the crown.
Run For It strays away from the more airy and ethereal feel that dominated tracks like Rise and The Thaw. Instead, the track introduces us to a dare I say it, more primal and confident sound from Woodes. There’s a take no prisoners approach to the song with big tribal drums blasting alongside a spell-binding vocal that calls out like a war cry. She leads her tribe forward into the breaking dawn into a new world that awaits ahead.
“The lyrics stem from accepting things being within the nature of certain people or genders,” says Woodes. “From being called out from cars to men expecting women to act a certain way depending on how they are dressed… A warning. Signifying things are changing.”
Woodes will be making a run for it live on stage when she kicks off her East Coast tour this July visiting Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. All the dates and ticketing information is right here for your viewing pleasure.
