Junk Science Strap on Their “Running Shoes” With New FREE Single Prepare Third Full Length for Def Jux Records

Junk Science – “Running Shoes” (Definitive Jux)

Brooklyn’s Junk Science have hit the ground running in the race towards their third full length, A Miraculous Kind of Machine, due later this year on Definitive Jux Records. They’re kicking things off with a series of free downloads, starting with “Running Shoes,” a celebratory “Obama song that has nothing to do with politics,” according to the group’s Baje One. He and partner Snafu wrote the track shortly after Barack Obama’s historic win and titled it “Running Shoes” because “it represents two opposing but connected ideas. On one hand, running shoes are empowering, they allow you to move, to get to new places, like wings. On the other hand, running shoes could be what you use to escape from reality: drugs, alcohol, sex, violence, etc.” The juxtaposition of the two ideas seemed to encapsulate perfectly what Baje One and Snafu felt about that night: “this song is really about the crossroads, the Ides, the night before something new. A song for the brief intermission.”
