Liana Bureau is an R&B singer/songwriter coming straight out of Quebec, Canada. There is an abundance of musical talent coming out of Canada. Kaytranada, Drake, River Tiber, The Weeknd, the list really is endless. Bureau brings an energetic groove fused with heartfelt lyrics to the table, which will be further illustrated with the release of her debut EP this fall.
Bureau’s debut single ‘On The Run’ paints a picture of longing and attempts to salvage romance. The video is made up of an all female cast taking part in different activities, such as basketball and breakdancing, as Liana looks dead ahead and speaks to your very soul. The track is extremely catchy and the simplicity of the lyricism on display symbolises a woman who has made up her mind, whilst not taking away from the groove that the track maintains.
“We could leave this place forever, but if you won’t you gotta let me go.”
The footage is shot entirely through a grainy, black and white filter, providing an edgy feel. Finally the video comes to an end with a platoon of independent women, united against the one who will not let them go.
