Love can be nerve-wracking and, sometimes, it just feels easier to retreat than to stick around and deal. Richmond, VA-based pop songstress Tyler Meacham tackles this thorny theory in her infectious new synth-heavy single, “No Running Away” from her brand-new album, Into The Fray – check it out on YouTube here:
“‘No Running Away” is a song about the struggle with vulnerability and trust I felt while falling in love with someone,” Meacham reveals. “It’s a story about anxiety and overcoming past heartbreaks cleverly disguised as an upbeat, synth-y pop song.”
The song is indeed upbeat, with an earworm hook, head-bopping groove, and a fist-pumping chorus that will make you want to dance or sing along in your car. It was inspired by some of Meacham’s favorite artists and hit-making producers, like Sara Bareilles, Jack Antonoff of Bleachers, and Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic.
