Run Away with Eric Nam
Eric Nam is back with his newest single “Runaway,” a refreshing summer-infused track about wanting to escape with a loved one. Released on May 8, the song marks yet another vocally impressive release for the singer while being a perfect track for the summer months ahead.
Short but sweet, the song is definitely on the pop side of things with its soft acoustics and EDM-influenced effects. In the song, Eric sings of a love wherein both he and his sweetheart run away to their metaphorical own little world. The track is tinged with optimism and easy to picture as the soundtrack to a summer adventure. Between its positive vibes and Eric’s usual knack for creating summer earworms, the only downside to “Runaway” is that it’s so short.
The music video, starring Nam himself alongside a female co-star, is the perfect complement to the song. In the video, the couple is seen getting up to various shenanigans, though the focus always remains on the connection between the two stars themselves. No action in the video is outrightly romantic; however, the bond between both stars is undeniable and speaks for itself. Filled with just simple glances and the freedom that only comes with letting your inhibitions down in front of the one you love, the chemistry between Nam and his co-star is downright exhilarating in its effortlessness. After all, the greatest adventure is getting to be yourself with someone you love—what better backdrop than that for a song like “Runaway?” So roll down your windows, turn up the volume, and get ready for summer with Eric Nam.
