Running Touch has today released his new single ‘Levitate’. The mysterious artist from Melbourne who has grown from an industry whisper to one of the most esteemed and talented new acts to hit the Australian dance music circuit premiered his new track this week.
An artist more than just a producer alone, Running Touch not only curates his own tracks, but acts as a one-man band – playing guitar, drums, piano, launch pad, curating lyrics, singing and even rapping on his own productions and live show. His sound and performance has been compared to the likes of Chet Faker, ZHU and Rufus, and his musical capabilities have seen him praised as one of Australia’s most promising talents.
He explains, “Levitate is what I’d consider the most passive approach to talking about obsession. Love is incredible, attraction is timeless. But nothing comes close to the uneasy sensation of obsession. It’s almost taboo to touch on, but I think that something that powerful and that unspoken is absolutely fascinating.”
Levitate is the follow-up to his first official single, the chart topping ‘Courtesy Of’ which has garnered praise across the blogosphere and added to high rotation on triple j. The single has since been streamed close to a million times online. Following the release of ‘Courtesy Of’ Running Touch embarked on a debut national tour that saw him bring his live show to 25 stages around the country. In between tour slots, he secured placements on some of the biggest stages in Australia – Splendour in the Grass, Groovin’ The Moo, Beyond The Valley, Listen Out and Southbound Festival to name just a few, additionally, supporting global sensation ZHU on his only standalone show in Australia.
