Worcester's Gut Health have one of the more interesting sounds coming out of central Massachusetts on their debut single. "Runaway High" has a classic loud/quiet loud vibe going, but not in the traditional way of Nirvana or the Pixies. The song does have the guitar sound of classic Nirvana, but they also bring in the more melodic elements of Deftones. It's a crunching powerhouse of a song with guitars that buzz at times, and are more melodic at others. That being said, the song does keep a surprising sense of beauty throughout, even at it's more noisy times. It's an impressive debut from a band that came out of nowhere for us, and one that we need to hear more from sooner than later.
