Really, it was only a matter of time. As surely as night follows day (and vice versa), The Internet was always going to serve up a newly-minted emo version of Kate Bush’s Stranger Things-boosted mega-hit Running Up That Hill, because That Is How Life Works Now.
And… BEHOLD! It is among us.
This gift comes courtesy of the lads – well, one of the lads, at least – from Loveless, posting on TikTok @thisisloveless.
We’d go into detail about exactly how this re-imagining sounds, but if you’ve heard a) Running Up That Hill and b) any emo/screamo song ever recorded in the past 20 years then you will know exactly how this sounds.
But don’t let that stop you checking out the post below:

And if you’re wondering who Loveless are, here’s the skinny, in their own words:
‘Hailing from Los Angeles, Loveless is an alternative rock/emo pop band originally formed by Julian Comeau and Dylan Tirapelli-Jamail in the fall of 2019. Seamlessly blending the sounds of the aughts with a fresh and modern twist, Loveless combines elements of pop, rock, and emo for a sound entirely their own.’
So now you know.
The famously private Kate Bush might post a statement giving her opinion on this, but tbh, don’t hold your breath.
Louder Sound – There’s now an emo version of Running Up That Hill, because of course there is
