Following up on the success of their first original “Dream,” Chicago trio Autograf returns with their latest single “Running,” out now as a free download. Bursting with vibrancy, "Running" is playfully soulful, filled with vivacious vocals, percussions and vibraphones to create their signature funk-infused vibes.
Initially an art-based project, Autograf looks to return to their personal manifesto of “making music for art.” Creating a distinct and original artwork to accompany each forthcoming release, each painting the trio puts to canvas serves as a method through which to further evoke and interpret the spirit of each song. The first in a series, the pop-art inspired artwork for "Running" appears to contain the image of Coco Chanel, a female icon who sought to break societal norms and conventions.
By infusing physical art elements to coincide with their live electronica sound, members Louis Kha, Mikul Wing and Jake Carpenter have reinterpreted the modern day music scene. Inspired by street artists such as Banksy and Andy Warhol’s famous factory, Autograf’s DIY aesthetic is one for the new age, possessing not only sonic elements, but visual ones as well. Having been tapped by influential artists including ODESZA, Faithless, and Fatboy Slim, Autograf’s trajectory of success has been fast and thrilling, with over ten HypeMachine #1 hits and over 20 million plays on Soundcloud. In addition to touring their live performance in North America, this fall will see the group taking their first foray into foreign territories including Asia and South America.
