I am generally not a fan of new bands and when I say new, I mean bands that were formed after the year 2000. One Republic is an exception to that rule, as are the Black Keys, but that is a post for another day.
One Republic got it’s start in 2003 according to Wikipedia, but they didn’t hit my radar until my daughter hit her teen years.The band’s recent hit “Counting Stars” has become a highly requested song at the weddings where the Stitely Orchestra performs. I heard their latest single from their 2013 album Native called Love Runs Out. That title doesn’t scream “wedding song”, but there is just something about it that makes me think it will be requested by more than one couple.
Stitely Orchestra, Chicago Groove Collective and 312 Chicago all get a kick out of learning fun new songs for our clients. What do you think? Will Love Runs Out be the next big wedding hit?
