Appropriately timed with their latest album, Innerworld, dropping today, fall in love with Toronto-based synth duo Electric Youth's video for their single, "Runaway". I'll admit, I had a moment where I felt like a worried mother watching this couple making out while riding around on a moped, but it really fits nicely with the songs subject matter, so I'll allow it. I love how this video celebrates imperfections in love, humans, etc. in a really beautiful way. Also Beirut (where the video was shot) looks like a place I wil have to visit one day.
If you haven't purchased/streamed/whatever Innerworld yet, you should probably get on that...now.
The duo will be hitting the road in North American starting in November so you have plenty of time to memorize the album and perfect your dance moves.
