“Run Baby, Run” is the second release from Future Radio‘s upcoming debut album, Freedom. The lyrics explore the concept of running from a relationship that’s stuck in a comfort zone. “Run Baby, Run” has all the elements one would expect from a dark, up-tempo rock song including, a catchy chorus hook, driving guitars and drums, supported by a groovy bassline. The song is reminiscent of early Foo Fighters songs.
Future Radio frontman Johnny Future comments on “Run Baby, Run”
“Metaphorically the song plays with the idea of the escape from Sodom and Gomorrah, a rather do-or-die situation. I generally don’t like comfort zones and try my best to avoid them.”
Future Radio’s debut album, “Freedom”, scheduled for release on 13 November 2020, is a concept album that deals with the notion of emancipation from the unexceptional and encourages the passionate pursuit of purpose. The band plans to release accompanying music videos, or rather episodes, for each track on the album. Each track essentially becomes an episode and each episode forms part of Season 1: Freedom.
Johnny explains how he sees Future Radio
“I clearly remember thinking to myself, when conceptualising Future Radio, that it can’t be just another rock band. Since then the idea has evolved quite dramatically. Future Radio is not a band, it’s a concept, it’s a movement, it’s art. We like to call it Future Rock.”

I have to admit that this is one of the more refreshing South African rock tracks that I’ve heard in 2020. I’m curious to find out how the full album is going to sound.
