New Music: Fred Roberts

That weekend went by way too fast, but fortunately we’ve got the perfect banger to kickstart your Monday.

‘Runaway’ is the incredible debut from 20-year old British singer and songwriter Fred Roberts.

The track lyrically inspires listeners to ‘let go’ of any negative feelings that might fester after a breakup, and sonically treats us to an anthemic mix of indie, pop and rock.

“’Runaway’ is a song about overcoming resentment towards someone that used to be a big part of my life. It’s a celebration of the freedom that arrives after you overcome a difficult time and a person who probably wasn’t the best for you. Someone who held the power to ruin your happiness with a few words or actions. The song details the last time I saw him – in a pub with friends, unexpectedly and the fear that comes along with that. But ultimately the realisation that I am no longer filled with upset and anger but with forgiveness. I am beyond excited to share it with the world and I really hope it connects.”

With early support from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and Clash Magazine under his belt, there is little doubt in our minds that Fred Roberts will become a UK household name very soon.
