TRACK: ‘Blankets’ – Run Dorothy

The first few chords of Run Dorothy’s ‘Blankets’ are unnervingly familiar – the chill-inducing syncopated heart flutter that you feel when you realize you are bound to math rock territory and find recluse within those short, golden minutes of unsullied sonic bliss. Coupled with the low temperature, this track came right in the smack of need and want of warmth. Dee Cruz’s vocals blend fluidly to each riff, punctuated with a chord that can only be likened to a weary gasp – wait for the switch at the 1:05 mark. It’s not always that we get to hear lyrics sung with complex guitar work that borders into a genre we’re used to being wordless, but this is precisely why Run Dorothy is a stimulating breath of fresh air, a welcomed derivation.
