Kings County is back with an intense and hard-hitting video remake of the 80’s classic from A Flock of Seagulls’ “I Ran (So Far Away)”. The Orlando, FL. rock band took their own rendition of the single and video and catapulted it to the next level.
I confess when I saw the title it didn’t ring any bells. Then I watched the video and heard it and… “aaaah! Yes, I know this one!”. The original is very much on the poppier end of rock, and Kings County have added a bit of grit. Once the tune kicks in, it’s instantly recognisable while still very much being a new version. Definitely worth shoving down your earholes!
Vocalist/bassist Rob Dexter says:
We teamed up with Director Adam Arnali, who mixed elements from the original A Flock of Seagulls video with a modern look and guitar-driven sound of the band, creating a darker visual experience.
“I Ran (So Far Away)” was produced by super producer Chuck Alkazian (Pop Evil, Soundgarden, Tantric) at Pearl Sound Studios (Asking Alexandria, Eminem, Filter) in Canton, MI.
