Chicago SOTW: Meat Wave – “Run You Out”

Our Chicago Song of the Week is the raucous new track “Run You Out” from post punk band Meat Wave. The song comes from their newly released sophomore album The Incessant. With freewheeling guitar chords, anxious drum beats, and frontman Chris Sutter’s fiery deliverance, “Run You Out” is appropriately fast paced as the lyrics find him looking for an escape while reflecting on the past. About the song, Sutter told CLRVNT, “It came out of some grand realizations about myself, and how some reflection can be really ugly — and necessary. Confronting, questioning how I had handled things, my desire to escape from a situation.”
