MUSIC VIDEO REVIEW
"Run" - JW Sargent
Written by: Lexie
With the amount of love songs we already have available to us, it's not easy to find another one that catches our attention. Singer and songwriter JW Sargent has taken on the challenge, and he's succeeded! JW Sargent took a theme as typically cliche as love, and created the song "Run," which is both catchy and pleasant.
This song is mellow alternative track, with clean and emotive vocals. The instrumentals appropriately fluctuate between gentle and fierce tones, adding intensity to the lyrics being sang where necessary. To further express the true nature of the song, the video consists of JW Sargent in contrasting settings -- one where he is in a dimly-lit, enclosed space, and another where is venturing outside, limitless, among nature. This imagery demonstrates the nature of the emotions aroused from this romance. JW Sargent sings of how he misses this loved one, and in this instance, he is feeling alone and the dark room emphasizes the sense of longing. He then sings of running away with his beloved, which is highlighted when he is free to roam where he wishes in nature.
Overall, I found this song to be sweet and the video to be just as charming. Considering the content and its portrayal, I would give this piece a 7 out of 10! Haven't heard it yet?
