Clocking in at just one minute and thirty six seconds, "Vines To Make It All Worth It" wastes no time in introducing everything that makes Weinman's songwriting so compelling. The song builds on a foundation of fingerpicked banjo and gently swells towards a conclusion of layered vocals and shimmering keys that leaves the listener wanting more.
Weinman discussed the new single saying:
"I wrote 'Vines' a few years ago. It’s a tiny song about placing a lot of weight on seemingly small memories, and living with the love and frustration of those moments, both then and now. The title was inspired by a conversation with my sister and I want to thank her for that because I write most of my songs starting with the title."
Since 2017 Weinman has been releasing music as Runnner, and the songwriter has already amassed an impressive catalog of beautifully homespun indie folk. Runnner's music often manages to feel both deeply intimate and cinematically sweeping all at once, utilizing a unique mix of hifi/lofi dynamics and intricate arrangements that incorporate guitars, banjo, synths, piano, and most importantly, Weinman's warm vocal and inviting vocals. The songs often unfold in ways that are instantly appealing but reveal themselves even more with each listen, offering new musical and lyrical insights like an old friend that's still always surprising you.
Runnner have also announced an upcoming headlining show in Los Angeles at the Troubadour scheduled for September 8th. Stay tuned for more from Runnner.
