Manila Killa‘s melodic chops are on full display in his latest offering: a spacious and rousing new single called “Run Away.” Arriving via the producer’s co-founded Moving Castles label, the evocative track is the first solo take in a while from the Filipino producer, who formerly served as one half of Hotel Garuda.
Last seen on an official collaborative flip of the Mission Impossible theme with his fellow collective members, the artist’s newest is in stark contrast to flip’s explosive trap-influenced take. Beginning in a dreamy haze of guitars and echoing vocals, “Run Away” evolves into a wall of wistful melodic tension before landing in a surprise breakbeat drop. Despite the percussive change up, the song never loses its grip on a melancholic core that makes it a new standout of the Manila Killa catalogue.
