Boome is an artist based out of Dallas, Texas and originally hails from Marietta, Georgia, about 15 minutes north of Atlanta. After releasing his album “Citizen Kane” and hitting the road with legendary rapper Bun B, Boome is back with more releases for his fans. Among his grand plans is a full length album called “Beautiful Dragon” which he plans to release this fall. “I’m happy right now, so the next album is nothing but love songs” is what he had to say about this forthcoming release. Boome has made his rounds and built up his core fan base. He has built a touring reputation by hitting the road with acts such as Juicy J, Machine Gun Kelly and Kid Ink to name just a few.
“Runners” is the latest single offered by Boome. This tune begins with a soulful and melancholic piano, and quickly builds up and transforms into a forward-moving groove. Boome’s vocals are sublime, and seem perfectly placed for the type of music he’s creating. The beat is a great addition to the verses, and sometimes this beat drops out entirely to build suspense and momentum. The simplicity of the piano’s long-held chords provide a great backdrop for Boome’s lyrics. One might actually struggle to pin this song down in terms of genre. At once there are elements of hip hop, RnB, soul and pop. This song has themes of love and togetherness, “Do you ever just wanna run away?” being the question posed throughout. However it doesn’t seem like this question is posed as a means of escapism or fleeing from something, rather an opportunity for two loved ones to be together. Boome has an impressive number of things happening in this song, and he seems to have crafted his own unique voice. We definitely recommend giving “Runners” a listen, and we are excited for the release of Boome’s new album this fall!
