Portland-based indie rock band Corvair, comprised of husband/wife duo Brian Naubert and Heather Larimer, will release their self-titled debut album on February 19 via Paper Walls. They have shared the album’s new single “Sunday Runner” and shared a brand new music video.
The track uses their dynamic as a duo well, with shared vocals and a big anthemic indie rock sound that reminds of other indie duos such as The Rosebuds and Mates of State.
About the song the band says:
Sunday Runner” is a song about a high altitude first date that turns into a tortuous affair–and the literal weekly habit of running around a lake to burn off the frustration of it all. The song is a riff-forward descent into synth rock, laden with emotionally pointillistic lyrics and cryptic turns of phrase. The tension builds until the song finally spills over into lush Mamas and Papas-inspired harmonies and a sweetly earnest pledge to do whatever it takes to keep the flame alive. “Sunday Runner” was mostly tracked (other than the drums), like the rest of the album, in our home studio during the COVID quarantine of Spring 2020 when we had nothing to do at night but argue via song lyrics about the finer points of our origin story and sift through 200 different organ sounds to find the right mix of Deep Purple and Yo La Tengo.
