End-of-Summer Song: “Running Around” by Young Maverick

31 Aug

Let’s face it: summer is coming to a close. We only have a few short weeks to wrap up our summer fun, which means I can finally shed this bikini body that I put on back in April. It’s both cleansing but also disappointing, to know that the weather is about to turn and theaters will lose mindless blockbusters in favor of Oscar bait. And what we’ve learned from those fall movies is that summer romances just aren’t meant to last.


“Running Around” is summer love. It is fast, fun, but also causes a little heartache once it ends. But then again, summer romances are disposable, not to be taken seriously. Young Maverick takes heartbreak and forgets about it, because wouldn’t you rather dance than wallow in misery?

Young Maverick is an Aussie quartet that labels their music as “holiday pop,” which made me initially think that they sang Christmas carols. The Americanized translation of their new genre is better stated as “vacation pop,” intending to invoke memories of the fun and carefree times when you were on summer retreat. And it turned out that there could not be a more accurate genre. The swift guitars reminiscent of “Cousins” contrast well with frontman, Robbie Keith’s bored tone to create a great summer song that resonates with all young mavericks who revel in summer hi-jinx.

“Running Around” is off of Young Maverick’s newest EP, Holiday Popular, out now. Visit their website for more information.

    There can be a selection of sleep sofas and loveseats away
    from Sweet Dreams range that range from 65 to 86 inches
    wide. I fell in love which has a wonderful sleeper sofa at Rooms to Go that contained all of those,
    together no interest or payments due for the year plus a half.
    With no separate mattress, this kind of sofa bed simply unfolds
    directly on for the floor, so that this solid foam
    seat becomes the sleeping area.

    I know because I have young children who have stained my sofa with
    assorted fluids for example urine, juice and vomit.
    There is more to this sofa than simply the
    name that’s why it can be in high demand out there.
