I really never thought I would see Rivers Cuomo and Pink Siifu on the same track but here we are

Oh no, please not like this no please. Running Red Lights is an extremely bare song and for this to be released by The Avalanches makes me real sad. Almost nothing stands out at all and the instrumental is as boring as it gets for me. Rivers surprisingly was my favorite part of the song delivering a decent chorus that sounds pretty fun, but just that fact for me says alot about this new direction for the group and it makes me pretty sad because I'm no fan of this.

Score: 4/10

I mean, there are barely any samples here. But this is actually a really cool, catchy single. Rivers also did a surprisingly good job here.

This was a David Berman interpolation too? Okay

this is actually pretty good, i like it despite the fact that pink siifu's verse is bland and the production is not always on par with The Avalanches' previous stuff

i actually kind of like this! its a cute little pop-folk song, and it makes me excited for their new album. but, if the rest of the album is going to sound like this... i don't think itll be good. this sounds like a track in the album, and not really a single if that makes sense
