Alaskan singer-songwriter Ralph Castelli put out his latest single “Running” on May 8. Between the winding bassline and bouncy melody, this glitzy indie-pop tune is an easy add to any playlist. The track builds slowly, and goes down easy with Castelli’s smooth sound and softly enticing vocals. He subtly commands attention, confidently delivering lines like “I know you’d never let go of me” with a softness that makes smugness more than palatable. “Running” manages to balance between a bedroom bop for dancing in the mirror and something that you could sit and wind down to, demonstrating the strength of Castelli’s abilities as a producer. The track is a bit darker than Castelli’s previous hits like “Morning Sex” and “Lonely,” without losing his distinctive sound. The nonchalant, buoyant track begs to be listened to — so go and listen to “Running” tonight.
