Royal Pirates’ “Run Away” is a welcome return from the rock band


Royal Pirates have returned with “Run Away” after a delay to their comeback plans due to James almost losing a hand and having to switch instruments entirely, which is about as good of an excuse as any.

“Run Away” didn’t strike me as anything that deviated a whole lot from the pop-rock template, especially at its outset, but that didn’t mean it wasn’t a quality mainstream rock song anyway. However, what elevated it to playlist material were the EDM elements and the breakdowns, which were more than enough to make this a jam. That’s doubly true in the Korean entertainment scene, where mainstream “rock” bands with any type of quasi-aggressive sound is rare.
