Brooklyn-based artist Oscar Rodriguez – who has operated as Albis since 2011 – has released a new track, “Runners,” from his upcoming self-recorded album ANIMALS. Rodriguez, a veteran of the DIY punk scene, shows a slower side in this indie-rock influenced track. “Runners” features steady acoustic strumming overlaid with synth and electric guitar to create a stirring background for his pensive lyrics.

“It’s about the pain that comes from an unwanted goodbye, and about what was and what won’t be again,” says Rodriguez.
