Melbourne’s feel-good folk duo Sunday Lemonade have been spreading their sunny musical storytelling around the country, and are set to do the same with their new single ‘Runaway’ out on October 7.

Touring around the country in a van together since joining forces in 2018 has seen Tyson and Loz spread their high-energy performances far and wide, winning over hearts everywhere they play. They’ve sold out two headline shows, and supported the likes of Daniel Champagne, Steph Strings, and The Pierce Brothers.

After quitting their jobs in 2019 to dedicate their time to music, the pair won the Emerging Artist Award in 2020 at their first festival appearance at Nannup Music Festival before getting caught in 4 months of lockdown. Since, they have been touring relentlessly and have released a number of singles.

Having just toured WA for the third time and recently releasing the single ‘See You Sometime’ in October, the pair are gearing up for more with this special new release, ‘Runaway’.

Already a crowd favourite at their gigs, the tune is an instantly uplifting, piece of heartfelt folk-rock. Focusing on the feelings of mutual but unresolved desire, ‘Runaway’ boasts a meandering guitar melody, steadied by a tricksy drumpad beat. The quiet moment before the final chorus draws the listener in, stirring vulnerable feelings before amping things up, elevating to cleverly mimic the feeling of heightened anxiety and building anticipation that happens when you begin to obsess over someone.

Speaking on the story behind the song, Sunday Lemonade explain:

‘Runaway’ is a pop/folk story of reciprocated but unspoken lust, exploring the fascinating hints and moments with another human yet frustrating lack of courage to actually act on it. The fairy tale dream of what would happen if that person would hurry up and grab your hand, take you on an adventure and you’d finally have the chance to fall in love.”

The pair have already earned support from ABC Radio, Australian community radio and have been added to Triple M’s country rotation. In addition to this, their time busking has paid off, seeing the duo place 2nd in ‘Battle of the Buskers’, first in ‘Passport to Airlie’ which will see them head to the festival in November for the Grand Final.

Stay tuned for Sunday Lemonade’s new single release ‘Runaway’ on October 7. Then, catch them in November as they take to the stage for Vinehop Festival (VIC) headlined by The Bamboos and Ash Grunwald.
