Blind Man - new single and music video
"Blind Man" is the first single that announces the second BR's album and the first song recorded after the breakup in 2017 with Oscar Jensen, the previous vocalist of Backward Runners. This time, Piotr Wasyluk (formerly singing in KOFEiNA, SAMO, Loud For Love, he is also the co-author of two compositions on the debut BR album ) is behind the microphone. The result is a song that differs significantly from the previous work of BR. Maciek Romanowski, leader and guitarist of the band: "Blind Man" is a new version of Backward Runners. The change is deep because it not only concerns a new voice behind the microphone, but also shows the direction in which our music evolves. And this is - we hope so - a really powerful progress. It will be stronger, definitely more dark and emotional, although we will still try to get the best melodies. We are very excited about the future and we can not wait for the entire recording session. The premiere of the single "Blind Man" will take place on July 25. The song will be accompanied by a music video, created by Ewelina Lewandowska.
Dutch magazine IO Pages recommends "Another Day, Another Dream"
(…) „Another Day, Another Dream” can be listened to over and over again and each time you can discover something new, an excitement grows.
The individual style of the album’s creators impresses the listener. The style in which references to other music genres gently interlace with each other, emphasising the unique character of the compositions.
Backward Runners gives us a real diamond.

50 minutes of musical pleasure - Rock Area reviews "Another..."
(...) Musically it is a peculiar mix of post rock and progressive rock, with some psychedelia. It draws, mesmerizes and enchants with its unhurried pace and elusive aura, if hazy, but extremely colorful, and at the same time very melodic (...).
Communing with the debut album Backward Runners, is undoubtedly the 50 minutes of true musical pleasure.
"Teraz Rock" reviews "Another Day, Another Dream"
(...) Backward Runners rely on melodies more than, for example, crazy instrumental passages.
The album is dominated by songs in mid tempos, driven by motives played on the guitar or keyboards (...).
I am curious about the next step.
DPRP net (Netherlands) describes "Another Day, Another Dream"
(...) Here’s an album that should please everybody who likes to float in the seas of melancholia and depressive moods.
Review in "Głos Kultury"
The compositions (…) are smart and played with the idea and, what is the most important they have a lot of good, sometimes even brilliant melodies, which stay in the listener’s head for a longer period of time (…). While listening the album we are dealing with the instrumentally self – confident band, melodically bold (…). It is a grat piece of music. Simply.
