The Hiding (Anthony Salce, Ryan Di Cecco, Adrian Perri) formed out of a previous band in the summer of 2010. This project saw them tour Australia, and the USA, supporting some of the country’s most respected national and international acts. Due to a direction change, it was at this point The Hiding was born.
The Hiding have just released their latest single, “Run City Run”.The song has a fresh feel to it, with lyrics that grab on and don’t let go and a beat that is dance-worthy coupled with a hum-worthy melody. The track leaves the listener feeling delighted with a well-crafted and nicely polished song that is incredibly euphonious, uplifting, and addictive.
The Hiding blends everything good from various crossover pop genres and creates work that is both current and catchy, while being complex and touching at the same time. I’m struck by how their songs can be simultaneously poppy, symphonic, inspirational, and achieve a depth that you would hardly find in the vast majority of pop music out today.
Singer Anthony has such a wonderful way of using words, so intricate and captivating while the sound of the band goes way beyond hypnotic. They somehow give you the feeling of hope and the sentiment of wanting to leave earth a better person – regardless of what your mood is!
With their latest single, The Hiding confirms that they are capable of brilliantly written, modern urban-pop-rock songs. In fact, they are setting standards to how modern rock should be played today. They balance each song with enough twists, diversity and musical hooks, between electronic and guitar driven rhythms, to keep their music on the art-rock side of the equation rather than simple, sweet candy-pop.
These guys really have a different, unique style and flow to their music. Strong vocals and pop charm harmonize “Run City Run” into a great listening experience. At this point their music can only expand to greater heights. Can’t wait for the album!
