There seems to be no end to laddish bands these days and Running Dogs are one of the many. The whole song is very Arctic Monkeys circa ‘Suck it and See’ but Arctics have certainly found great fame doing what they do so that isn’t a bad thing.
‘Rumpunch’ hits heavy straight away and, true to its name, punches itself forcibly at you throughout the song. It’s fast paced and certainly leaves an impression on you- you’re unlike to get the chorus of ‘Where did you get those eyes?’ out of her head in a hurry although after the twentieth repetition of said line, it does feel rather monotonous. They certainly know how to write a single: this track is sharp and to the point and, with some tweaks here and there, Running Dogs could do very well indeed.
