Mysterious sci-fi / challenging world is no match for love. What am I talking about? I’m talking about the video for the brand new track, “Out Of Time” by 5-piece alt rock Melbourne, Australian band, Running Young.
The band was formed after lead singer Joel survived emergency open-heart surgery at just 25 years of age. “I should have died before I even got to hospital because my aorta basically just popped like a balloon,” says Joel, smiling.
“I spent two weeks in intensive care fighting for my life and, somehow, miraculously made it through.”
The song, “Out of Time” was written about this harrowing time in Joel’s life. According to his doctors, with all of the post-op complications factored in, his chances of survival sat at around 2-3% but it seemed it wasn’t his time to go. “After coming that close to death you tend to gain some insight into what you want out of life and how lucky you are to still be a runner in the human race”, says Joel. “I decided what I wanted out of life was to be true to my heart for whatever time I had left and also to see if I could encourage others to do the same. The best way I knew how to both of those things was to start a band!”.
Well Joel, Indie Underground is really happy you pulled through! Thank you for this musical gift!
