PREMIERE: Middle Distance Runner – Cherry Blossom Bop


It’s been a hot minute since we’ve heard from Middle Distance Runner, but DC’s finest are back with “Cherry Blossom Bop,” an explosive rock ‘n’ roll ode to their hometown. Clocking in at just under two minutes, “Cherry Blossom Bop” is both a celebration of springtime in the District as well as a lamentation of “the arrival of hordes of blissfully oblivious tourists.” In the band’s words, the track is a “catchy and upbeat meditation on nativism, isolationism and horticulture.” Couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Grab a copy of the song below.
