Musical Discovery: ‘Run Boy Run’ by Woodkid

OK, so this discovery may be way overdue, but it was one of those songs for me that I just didn’t feel compelled to buy. However, after listening to it a few more times, I have bought the track, and it is amazing.

You can watch the music video for this track over on Vimeo. You can click here to watch it.

Before I comment on the track itself, I feel the need to mention how awesome and cinematic the music video is. The story told in almost a Lord of the Rings-like style matches the spirit of the song.

The track itself is lead by a fast-beat stick rhythm on the drums, which makes the song catchy and memorable. Aside from that, the song is strengthened with occasional bursts of cinematic orchestra, with violins appearing in the chorus, as well as bringing the song to an end.

A brilliantly cinematic song, which is testament to its appearance on a variety of TV and film, with one of the most recents being the movie adaptation of the book, Divergent.
