It comes alongside a new video featuring members of Ocean Grove, Northlane and Crooked Colours.

You might know Running Touch as an accomplished solo electronic artist, but behind the scenes the producer has writing credits for the likes of Ocean Grove and Adult Art Club. He also linked up with Hayden James in 2018 for the triple j favourite and ARIA Gold-certified, ‘Better Together’.

Now, the mysterious music-maker has a new track to be lifted from his forthcoming debut album, Meet Me. ‘Signs’ sees Running Touch return to his roots with an indie-pop beauty that also has magnetic rock music attributes.

This is a track for a wide spectrum of music fans that champions Running Touch’s lesser-known vocal capability. ‘Signs’ follows the blueprint of luminous pop music slowly coming into its own, building towards a climax before exploding with a triumphant guitar solo.

Running Touch has revealed a new video to go with the track. Presumably filmed while in iso, the producer teams up with Ocean Grove drummer Sam Bassal, the similarly-inclined Nic Petterson from Northlane and Crooked Colours’ Lampy for an epic drum session.

The clip comes as the first instalment of the Post Modern Collective Sessions, Running Touch’s new instrument-focused video series set to be rolled out alongside the release of his debut album. Here fans will come to face-to-face with the Running Touch music method, diving deeper into the creative process that drives his limitless potential.
