Introducing Keep On Running, the debut single from Russian singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and visual artist, Dan Sultanov. As heard on Graham Norton, BBC Radio 2, this is an uptempo, feel-good pop infused single, with a vintage 80s sound that’s bound to get your toes tapping. This record will take you back in time with its energy and grooviness, in addition to the retro animation video, which shows a couple running through a labyrinth of the songs lyrics.
Sultanov himself describes the track as his ‘nostalgic summer song’, stating that it reminds him of ‘the sea, sand, women wearing big sunglasses and open top cars’. Combined with the colourful artsy video accompaniment that’s exactly the vibe you get. It’s a effortlessly cool animation, to go with an effortlessly cool track.
With a little help from producer and writer Andy Wright (who’s produced for Annie Lennox, Simply Red & Jeff Beck), the single is due for release on 25th February and is the first taste of what’s to come from Sultanov’s self-titled debut album, due out April 2013.
