Biography

In the course of several months, Run River North went from playing a handful of hometown shows in Los Angeles to performing to an audience of millions on late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live! It was an explosive trajectory for the sextet, whose uplifting anthems march to the beat of drums, jangling guitars and a rapturous string section. The rapid ascent from obscurity launched a new chapter for ... Read more in Amazon's Run River North Store

Editorial Reviews

Debut album from LA based Run River North produced by Phil Ek (Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes, Built To Spill, The Shins, Father John Misty). Formed in 2011, Run River North is Alex Hwang (lead vocals, guitars), Daniel Chae (vocals, strings), Jennifer Rim (strings), Joe Chun (bass, vocals), John Chong (drums, vocals) and Sally Kang (vocals, keyboards). The band's 2012 6-song demo (recorded under the band's previous name Monsters Calling Home) landed them a TV performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and a sold-out Troubadour show all prior to being signed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets under your skin, into your heart February 25, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Run River North combines powerful lyrics and resonant harmonies to produce a unique sound that is at once fresh yet mature. The songs consistently touch upon a melancholy (particularly in Beast) that never wholly overwhelms; the songs are instead suffused with a hope that is all the more poignant for their restraint. This is not only one of the best album debuts I've ever heard, it's one of the best albums, period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poignant lyrics, arresting sound February 26, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been looking forward to this album since hearing bits and snippets from live youtube clips and the noisetrade album sampler.

It was well worth the wait. Currently, listening through the whole album. I love the rich sound from the blend of instruments and then the textured harmonies. love it love it. sort of along the mellow/upbeat sound of Of Mice and Men ...

I guess one of my favorite things about this group is their back story and how they defy the asian stereotype.

favorite song: Lying Beast.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice band. March 5, 2014
Format:Audio CD
They have a monsters and men sound with the vocals, but not as produced on this first on this debut album.

Good lyrics, good rhythms, good mix of acoustics. Being Korean, of course they have violins like on "Beetle."

Really do like the sound, and "Monsters calling home" "Beetle" and "Fight to Keep" are the two standouts.
Hope they gain traction as a band and get a chance to explore their experiences as a band.
Hope to see them out on tour.

5.0 out of 5 stars What you hear is what you get. April 28, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is GREAT! It's rare to find true talent these days. All of the biggest artists now throw millions of dollars into music production during the recording phase, then they sound like crap on stage. With these guys, what you hear is what you get– truly talented musicians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good album June 4, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My girlfriend and I saw them at the Brooklyn Bazaar, she liked them very much so we got the album and it is very good, plus you get the mp3 before you receive the album which was a pleasant surprise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Run to Run River North May 30, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was lucky enough to see this band open up for the Goo Goo Dolls earlier this year and I liked them immediately.
Their voices were very pleasing to listen to and had wonderful harmonies. There wasn't a song on this CD that I didn't like.
