Alexis de la Rocha has today released her new video for the single titled ‘Running Back’. Subtle with a vibrant hook, the song is a retro look at modern relationship problems that collide the line between self reliance and co dependance.
The song has an almost quiet way about it, while the video immerses itself into the possibilities brought by relating to the subject through personal memories. But, in the end, we all get a new anthem for the recovering with an empowerment brought by the confidence of the artist.
