Originally from Wuppertal in Germany but now based in London, singer songwriter Maike impressed us with her new single On The Run – a sophisticated blend of personal lyrics and upbeat pop sounds.

Maike says the song based on an adventurous relationship she was in and an incident that occurred on a road trip through north America. It shows that true love will stop at nothing, even when all warning signs tell you you’re heading in the wrong direction.

With lyrics that wouldn’t be amiss on the soundtrack of a Thelma and Louise reboot, the track is a pean to love, romance and transgression, whilst the track playfully fuses pop and rock sensibilities to create a sound somewhere tragic doom pop of The Shangri-Las and an electro Cranberries. On The Run is out now and is streaming on Spotify
