Single Review: Guinevere – “Ran For My Life”


Those of you who have been following me over the past few years may remember Guinevere from the Dave Aude remix I premiered for her single “Crazy Crazy” over on Allure of Sound. Well, I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news. The good news is that the pop singer is back with a new single titled “Ran For My Life.” The bad news is that my finger is sore from hitting the repeat button.

“Ran For My Life,” out now on iTunes, twists and manipulates various genres seamlessly while still maintaining a fluid and cohesive sound. It is bold, yet lighthearted. The production couldn’t be better:  offering up unexpected sonic bleeps and glitches that somehow make the song even more enjoyable. All in all, this is a great example of pop music done right. Running for your life has never sounded so appealing. I still can’t figure out how mainstream radio has over-looked Guinevere the past few years. She’s been consistently gathering a loyal fanbase, and it seems like she has all it takes to be a global pop star. Maybe “Ran For My Life” will finally grab their attention.
