Middle Distance Runner October 3, 2006

Posted by alexd in Music, Unheard Artist.

Another band I found on Musicforkidswhocan’treadgood.

Although not necessarily a new band, having formed in 1998. Middle Distance Runner are a band from Washington who say their influences are:

Wilco, Radiohead, Blur, Iron and Wine, The Beatles, Broken Social Scene, Arcade Fire, Oasis, Super Furry Animals, My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Sigur Ros

That’s a lot of very good bands to be influenced by, and they do not let down their “influencers” down either. They sound like (Fields x Manic Street Preachers /Coldplay) – United Kindgom + United States. And the song below will blow your mind at least.
